Dhuum was once the cruel and unjust God of Death. During his reign, Dhuum ruled from his tower in the Underworld, and tolerated neither resurrections nor the existence of the undead, and he hunted down all those who escaped death, having promised "death undeniable."

Long before the Exodus of the Gods, Dhuum was challenged and usurped by the half-god Grenth and seven heroes who followed him and was struck down in the ossuary of the Cathedral of Eternal Radiance in Orr. Dhuum's tower was shattered, creating the Chaos Plains, and his power was transferred to Grenth, who sealed him within the Hall of Judgement behind enchanted doors and layers of divine magic as he was unable to destroy Dhuum. There, Dhuum bided his time, gaining power every time a creature dies in the Underworld. Sometime before the Flameseeker Prophecies could be realized, the upheaval in Tyria allowed the army of Dhuum to launch an assault on the Underworld, imprisoning Grenth's Reapers and taking control of large portions of the realm. Other agents of Dhuum allied with servants of Abaddon when they attacked the Tomb of the Primeval Kings, disruption to the 1585 CC Dragon Festival was led by the Fury, one of Dhuum's generals, and later to bring about Nightfall with Menzies' forces.

Years later, Dhuum was able to accumulate enough power to break free of his bonds, but forces led by King Frozenwind were able to defend the Reapers long enough for them to perform a ritual to return him to his dormant state. However, since then he has managed to repeatedly break free.

[edit] Notes

Bug Bug.After defeating Dhuum, King Frozenwind sometimes fails to teleport you into his chamber, which prevents you from getting the Underworld chest. If this happens, you should run as far as possible back into wastes. Most often, this reactivates King Frozenwind and you can get the Underworld chest
