The King of Ghouls was once a vassal of Orcus until Ranivorus invaded his realm. The King was then forced to swear fealty to the Gnoll Lord. He appears as a twisted and horrid ghoul, with sickly green light radiating from his eyes. The King of Ghouls is draped in a robe made of human flesh and a wears a suit of plate armor studded with tiny skulls. On his head rests a crown of bones.

He can cast the Immortal Level spells Power Attack, Probe and Shield. He is immune to non-magical and silver weapons, but may be attacked by magical weapons. Like other undead, the King of Ghouls is immune to sleep and charm spells, but he is immune to a Cleric's Turn Undead ability. Anyone struck by his attacks must make a save or be paralyzed for 2d4 turns. Elves are immune to this effect.
