The Devkarin Elf Lich Jarad vod Savo, or simply Jarad, is a former guild leader of the Golgari Swarm on Ravnica.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Bounty hunter[edit | edit source]

Jarad was a bounty hunter who worked extensively in the Undercity of Ravnica. His sister, Savra was the matka of the Devkarin elves, and unbeknownst to him, the servant of Szadek. When her ambitions brought her to control Svogthir to upset the current guild balance, he found himself opposed to his twin. Allied with Agrus Kos and Fonn Zunich, he was instrumental in upsetting Szadek's coup at the decamillenial Festival of the Guildpact. After his sister's death in those events, he took control of the Golgari Swarm.

Guild leader[edit | edit source]

He briefly married Fonn and fathered a child named Myc, however their obligations to their respective guilds and differences in belief of how their child should be raised led to their separation. When Kos died, he acted as one of the pallbearers at his friend's funeral.

Lich[edit | edit source]

He was ultimately killed by Izolda in a Rakdos ritual trying to rescue his child who had been kidnapped to fuel the ritual. Thanks to his intervention, Myc's life was saved, but Jarad died shortly after. However, being versed in necromancy, though not as proficiently as his deceased sister, he managed to possess his own corpse. He remained the Golgari guildmaster.

Imprisonment[edit | edit source]

At an unspecified time, Jarad was taken captive in a sparsely populated corner of the city. Pleased with the planewalker Vraska's role in securing the Immortal Sun, Nicol Bolas rewarded her with the information where Jarad was imprisoned.[2] As leader of the disenfranchised among the Golgari, she vowed to bring justice to Jarad and replace him with a worthier guild leader.
