This was the new boss of the Aspis Consortium in the Lost City. Ivo came in with his fighting force, killed the previous leader, Dargon Etters, and established himself as the head of the camp. Once in control he moved, then fortified the Aspis camp and began attacking the other camps, giving up on research, all together.
He and his men attacked the Pirate camp while the PC’s were gone. The PC’s in turn attacked him and his people, pretty much killing them all with a black tenticles spell.
When he died, the PC’s noticed that he did not have a brain, only greenish fluid leaking out of his eyes ears and nose.
His death and the destruction of the Aspis fighting force, signaled the end of the Aspis influence in the Lost City.
