Once known as the god of the mental order, Shigdarr, Lord Cerebrum is the cruel leader of the Pit Lords. Cold and abusive to his subordinates, he is constantly thinking up new plans to attack and subjugate the humans and humanoids that live outside of the Badlands, but when his plans inevitably fail, he always blames his inferiors with fierce reactions.
The first of the old gods, Shigdarr was the first to charge into The Black Pit to do battle against those who wronged the people of Erridose. Little did he know that the green sickening mist within the Black Pit would twist and warp his body and mind faster than anyone else during that battle. By the time the battle was over, Shigdarr was already feeling the effects of the poison mist and his knees buckled as he experienced true pain for the first time. His laughter could be heard echoing throughout the pit as he saw his reflection for the first time and saw his new, huge, bulbous head.
Like all of the Pit Lords, Lord Cerebrum is able to wield magic without the aid of a Wisp. He’s capable of wielding any magic type from within the Mental Order, meaning that he is a highly skilled illusionist, future seer, and is capable of powerful feats of telepathy and telekinesis, among many other abilities.
