Cerzak appears in Telepath RPG Chapter 2.
Cerzak is a Dark Spriggat who went to the same military academy as Darkeye. Cerzak eventually becomes prominent general in the Queen's army and the right-hand man of General Tastidian. During his time in the army, Cerzak begins to suspect that the Shadowling Queen had many female spriggats killed, including Cerzak's wife, in order for her to keep power. One day, Cerzak has something akin to a religious experience, and decided he couldn't serve the Queen any more. With his son Grotius, Cerzak left the army and became the commanding general of the Dissidents in order to rebel against the Shadowling Empire.
Cerzak first appears when the player arrives in the Deeper Downs, and after a short conversation, he casts the player into the Bug Pit. He later appears as a boss in a battle on the north side of Lake Alto.
Dark Breath (Range: 1-3, Damage: 20, Status Effect(s): -1 Speed/attack)
Resistance : Shadow
Cerzak is one of the toughest bosses in the game. You need to have trained your team members enough to fight him. He and the other two dark spriggats on his side use Dark Breath to slow down any characters who don't have Shadow Resistance. With repeated attacks, they can reduce your characters' speed to as low as two spaces per turn.
In the opening of the battle, send Darkling, Shadowboxer and Festus in front to take down the frost spriggats on the right. The Shadow Resistance of your allies gives them protection against Dark Breath, so keep them in front of Cerzak. You should now try to finish the other two dark spriggats. Send your player and any other major damage dealer that you have at your disposal to destroy these guys as soon as possible. Meanwhile, your allies should deal with the remaining enemy units on the left. You don't need to kill the Red Spriggats on the top that use Big Shield. Just make sure that you draw Cerzak's attention away, as those don't move from their starting position at all. Concentrate fire on Cerzak and his health will drop to zero.
After the battle Edit
Once you have succesfully defeated Cerzak, he falls unconscious to the ground. You have a choice between killing or sparing Cerzak. If you finally decide to kill him and Grotius is present, you will have to kill him too. If you kill both of them, you lose Personality points.
"[A deep, bemused voice pops into your head.] Well, well. I had a feeling we'd be seeing you sooner or later."
"I truly wish I had a way to remove that bracelet of yours, but I don't. And as long as you wear that...thing...you pose too much of a risk to us. You will never be free to choose not to fight us."
"Curse? Me? Surely not, dear DarkEye. You're merely upset because I've handed you your first military defeat. The first since we went to the Queen's Academy together, anyway."
"[Cerzak glances your way.] You again? I see you've survived somehow. And killed all my men. I sympathize with your position as a slave, but I cannot you-- either of you-- to go on attacking us. This is the end of the line for DarkEye and you."
