Masters of the Undead don’t often meet with other world denizens such as Demons. Yet walkers have crossed the planes since the dawn of magic, and so began an ages old conflict between the plane of the dead and the 9 hells.
One such walker is said to be born a demon, but converted part of his soul in a ritual normally reserved for Liches to conceal their essence and forever tie themselves to unlife in the dead realm.
