The Archmage Daedrok
The Archmage Daedrok was one of the one of the Dark Archmagi that brought The Dark War into fruition. Daedrok was primarily charged with performing the black ritual responsible for brainwashing the newly reincarnated Deva spirits as they returned from the Astral Sea to the Mortal Plane. With the help of Vecna himself, Daedrok was able to know the location of each reincarnation before it occurred. He would then perform the ritual just before the Deva would return, thus eliminating any chance of remembering who they were in lives past during the Devas’ current mortal life.
The effects of this evil ritual would wear off as soon as the Deva Spirit returned to the Astral Sea, and it would be there that they would come to remember all of the horrible things they had done during The Dark War. Despite the fact that none of these terrible deeds were done under their own control, the memories flooding back still had an effect on the Devas’ immortal spirits, and many of these Devas became Rakshasas afterwards. Perhaps this was Vecna’s plan all along…
