Zeric is head of the family Lancaster, a noble family of Calica, and a house since fallen under ill repute because of his actions. Zeric ruled over the small city of Aria in Calica as a despot ruler, hoping to grow his forces and overtake the Calican leadership of King Stephanis. He is the father of Talia, and committed filicide when he murdered his only son, Terrance, in a magical ritual to gain power. Zeric and his wife, Lania, now ally themselves with the drow and the evil manlin army. There exact whereabouts are unknown, but it is rumored that they have done evil experimentation on Calican natives to help create creatures for the manlin army.
