Tamerlane was a transmortal and member of the Order Draconis (headed by Radu Bey).
Tamerlane was described as a tall man with a thin, black beard that looked like lichen drooping off a tree branch. His face was too solid for a mortal, and his eyes seemed to eat the light. When the transmortals attacked Ashtown he was armed with two swords. He wore leather on his arms, a long chain mail-shirt with loose flaps that hung between his legs, and a gleaming onion-shaped helmet with a single gold spike on the crown.
