Baruin, Lord of Destruction, was a shadow that infested Tele’rek. He was born with power greater then the dragon gods. It took Faruin, Alsanor and Musura to defeat him. Being a shadow creature Baruin’s soul was merely shattered, left to bind itself back together. Alsanor devised a way to prevent this by creating dimensional pockets for each of the fragments. From these dimensional pockets a weakened Baruin effects the minds of mortals.
