The Echze, once enthralled by the Wyrm, found liberation at start of the Age of Power when together with the Weismagir they banished the tyrants from this world. Sadly, the anarchy that followed led to competing warlords leading to ruinous war and most of their numbers depleted.
Now thought to number in the mere thousands, they can be found in scattered communities through the Kingdom of Kreisvolk and the Jovan Swamps. Some who long for the glory of their days under the yoke of the Wyrm have founded conclaves high in the mountains of Axis Descent.
The Edelmann prizes Echze as soldiers, emissaries and assassins. The wanderlust brings Echze across the land serving under one lord or another whilst the gold flows.
