As Soth is pulled inside, he cries, 'Kitara, help me!', then his body disappears into the maelstrom- gone to another dimension.
— Death Knights of Krynn


Lord Soth is a powerful Death Knight who fell from grace after falling in love with an Elf woman. He ordered the death of his current wife, and was banished. He fled to his castle, and eventually he asked for forgiveness and received a quest, which he failed to uphold. A cataclysm wracked the world, and when his lover had a child, he feared it was not his, and he slew them both. Now he reigns as an evil, yet noble, Death Knight.

Lord Soth was considered among the greatest D&D villains of all time, according to the final issue of Dragon Magazine.
