Using his new demonic power, Burgen was able to slaughter his former rivals and took control of the Fallen. He went on to cut a bloody swath through the underground of Sharn amassing a what could be called a small army in a short time. It was a at this time that Fencloak came to the attention of the mysterious Lord Weaver. The enigmatic leader of The Web approached Burgen and made it is assumed that he made an offer that the young thug could not ignore. It was on that day that The Recluse was born.
