In the World of Greyhawk campaign setting, as well as in the default pantheon in D&D, Nerull is the Flan god of death, darkness, murder and the underworld. He is known as the Reaper, the Foe of All Good, the Hater of Life, and the Bringer of Darkness.
Nerull is usually seen as a robed skeleton, carrying a scythe called "Lifecutter". His alignment is Neutral Evil, and his clerics are feared throughout the lands as cold, calculating murderers. Nerull is the patron deity of those who seek the greatest evil for their own enjoyment or gain.
