Once made hostile (which may not occur depending if Cernd takes this mage on one-on-one through dialogue options) the mage will by applying a preparation of protective buffs including Spell Immunity Invocation, Stoneskin and Spell Deflection, and then immediately thereafter will begin going on the offensive. A Spell trigger with Greater Malison, Chaos and Mirror Image may be deployed as well as Power Word, Silence and Power Word, Stun. Most of the spells in the InfoBox are available for use, as well as a few others not displayed, available by script.


Deril is a level 19 mage but is given a 14th level mage's script. So, no 8th or 9th level spells are cast from this creature in the unmodded game. Deril has grandmastery with blunt weapons, which translates to his equipped quarterstaff. Deril is now the most martial quarterstaff wielding mage in Athkatla.
