Drizyan is a Necron Cryptek of the Nihilakh Dynasty. An Ethermancer, he worked with the Nihilakh Necron Overlord Tarekh to reactivate an ancient Necron superweapon on the Tomb World of Cardrim dating back to the War in Heaven. Over the decades, the Cryptek has grown overly eccentric, insisting on ever-more bizarre demands from Tarekh if the ancient weapon is to be completed.
Needing the Cryptek's knowledge, Tarekh has been forced to acquiesce to Drizyan's demands. However, unknown to Drizyan, Tarekh is looking for another, more compliant and reliable Cryptek with similar skills to replace the Ethermancer in an attempt to resurrect the superweapon for his dynasty.
