Kuraulyek was the patron deity of urds.[1]


Kuraulyek appeared as a blue-skinned dragonwrought kobold[2] or as a blue-skinned urd with feathered wings.[1]


Kuraulyek was deeply cowardly and would never send his single avatar outside his plane unless his chosen race was in deadly peril. More often, he would send a huge mobat to aid one of his priests instead.[1]


Kuraulyek was said to have been raised to divinity by the dragon god Asgorath. The kobold deity Kurtulmak swore vengeance against Kuraulyek for abandoning the kobold race in their time of greatest need.[2]


Kuraulyek's realm was known as Urdsrest.[3] He hid in this gloomy cave in the Barrens of Doom and Despair, seldom leaving his dismal home for fear of Kurtulmak's wrath.[2] The lair was defended by a force of monstrous mobats.[1]


Kuraulyek's priests were required to help protect their gens and oppose those urds who worshiped Kurtulmak. They had no other specific duties.[1]
