Nester was one of Halaster Blackcloak's apprentices.[1]


In life Nester was a handsome, slender man with thinning hair and a penetrating stare.[2] After achieving lichdom, Nester appeared as a green-glowing, floating skull and skeletal arms.[1]


Nester tried to become a lich and succeeded—in part. He attained undead status, but he badly bungled his spells. He became a lich, in form, but gained slightly different powers. His phylactery was disintegrated and his body followed slowly.[1]
