- "I never knew that killing could be so much fun."
Errastas was worshipped as an Elder God known as the Errant by enclaves of the Imass, Barghast, and Trell, as well as the Letherii. He was the Master of the Holds / Master of the Tiles, an older title equivalent to the Master of the Deck for the Deck of Dragons. The Forkrul Assail had tried to assassinate him and all his followers at some point in the past. The people of Korel knew him as the Great Deceiver.
Under the pseudonym Turudal Brizad, Errastas lived in the city of Letheras as First Consort to Janall, the Letherii queen. His time in Letheras had actually spanned several generations, and he appeared in a number of historical tapestries and paintings. By fading into the background, Turudal Brizad often eavesdropped on discussions of sensitive issues. He was very attractive to both sexes and often accommodated his admirers.
The Errant had one of his eyes removed in a scuffle with the human Feather Witch. The Letherii slave then swallowed the eye. This connected him with Feather Witch, who had power over him as a priestess, until he drowned her. He caused the death of Trull Sengar by prodding Sirryn Kanar. He redirected Hannan Mosag's magic into the ground, saving the population of Letheras.
Errastas was revealed to be one of the sons of Grizzin Farl and an unnamed Azathanai. Kilmandaros was his step-mother. He was one of two Azathanai to murder the wife of Hood, the other being his step brother, Sechul Lath. He used her blood to make the Terondai, which opened the gate to Darkness for Draconus. Errastas resented K'rul's decision to give power away by creating the Warrens. He hoped to empower Mother Dark as a way to distract K'rul while he and his step-brother acted against him.
