Jarad vod Salvo is a green-black aligned elf turned lich and current Guildmaster of the Golgari Swarm. Jarad and his sister, Savra, played major roles in the breaking of the original Guildpact and the forming of the new non-magical Guildpact.

Breaking of the GuildpactEdit

At the time of the Decamillenial Jarad was a bounty hunter who worked extensively in the Undercity. Unbeknownst to him his sister, Savra the matka of the Devkarin elves, had allied herself with the Guildmaster of House Dimir Szadek. When her ambitions lead her to free Svogthir to upset the balance of the guild so she could claim the title of Guildmaster Jarad found himself opposed to his twin.

Allying himself with Agrus Kos and Fonn Zunich Jarad was instrumental in upsetting Szadek’s coup at the Festival of the Guildpact. After the death of Savra during the coup Jarad rose to the position of Guildmaster of the Golgari Swarm and wed Fonn Zunich who bore him a son before the couple parted ways.


Sometime later Kos passed away and Jarad acted as a pallbearer at his funeral. Shortly afterward his son, Myc, is kidnapped by Izolda who needs the blood of a Guildmaster to perform a ritual which would give her control of Rakdos. Jarad attempts to rescue Myc but is killed in the process and his blood is used by Izolda to perform the ritual.

Jarad, being skilled in necromancy but nowhere close to how proficient Savra was, was able to possess his own corpse and rise again as a lich.
