Zrie Prakis lived several centuries before the 14th century DR. He fell in love with Cassana but parted ways with her early in their careers. When they were reunited, they developed a hateful rivalry to see who had become stronger in the time they had been apart. This rivalry ended with his death at Cassana's hands. Cassana kept his remains at her side until she transformed him into a lich, and developed a magical wand to keep him in check and as her salve. All the while, he quietly plotted Cassana's destruction but was unable to act upon those plans.
Zrie was destroyed in 1357 DR during the final confrontation with Alias and her allies when the wand that Cassana used to bind him was destroyed by being thrown into another dimension, severing his link to the dark energies that sustained him.
Like his former lover, Zrie was vain and hateful.
Zrie appeared as most liches do. He had taut age-worn translucent skin stretched over his bones. His hollow black eye sockets each contained a pinpoint of evil red light.
