Oh, that other guy: Kerioth the Toad a.k.a. Pahjal of Daibul a.k.a. Zharvash the blind prophet a.k.a. the merchant Yodell. I wasn't able to create a drawing of him because I couldn't decide on which of his identities to use!
Besides, Drax was so memorable to me in the Circle of Power game simply because I loathed him so much. He was a traitor, a murderer, and an all-around cad, but as you played him, he was the character who truly gave Tolan a serious run for his money. Tolan and the game in general needed that nemesis for some good storytelling. Still, drawing Sheila serving him up a good wallop was rather cathartic.
And yes, we did finally bump off Drax. In a nutshell, Kerioth had broken his deal with Drax because Kerioth had grown rather infatuated with Lady Kirriam, and he abandoned his contract to eliminate the High Council because he was more interested in kidnapping her and taking her back to Zodalinga. Drax, realizing he was about to lose his bid to overthrow the Princess and take the throne of Yarfell for himself, furiously followed Kerioth for a reckoning, never realizing that Tolan was following HIM as the only lead in rescuing his little sister. Eventually everyone caught up at Kerioth's stronghold; Kerioth, the smart one, cut his losses and ran, so he's still out there somewhere. There was a fight between Drax and Tolan. The final result of that fight involved someone's sword and someone else's guts.
I'll let you figure out whose.
