Valkur’kil was your typical kolyarut, sent to the Prime Material plane from his clockwork factory on Mechanus with programming to mete out justice to oathbreakers. Successful in several missions, he was recalled for reprogramming. Upon reentering Mechanus and entering the torpor state necessary to undergo the rune-inscribing rituals that provide his kind their programming and missions, he was spirited away (rather, stolen) from the factory.
Transported by evil agents to the Hidden Temple on Carceri, fell clergy of Nerull washed away Valkur’kil’s past deeds in a series of foul rituals. At their master’s direction, the clergy continued their rituals, sealing new runes outlining the kolyarut’s new purpose: retrieve Ea’athurgoth and return it to Exeth by any means necessary.
Bathed in the evil power of Nerull’s clergy, rescribing the runic programming to make the kolyarut a tool of evil than an instrument of justice shattered what little will the construct previously had. Moreover, the magic literally bent the clockwork being to its new purpose, permanently altering the kolyarut’s appearance: slightly longer fingers, sharp flanges, a cruelly grinning skull, and the appearance of being made from rust-red colored metal.
Valkur’kil no longer knows his past. However, he does know his programming.
