Aumvor is calculating, paranoid, and utterly devoid of any moral compass, not unlike others of his ilk.

Note 1: Unlike most Liches, Aumvor has developed the capacity to split his soul more than the original phylactery requires; making use of a spell known as Aumvor's Fragmented Phylactery, he has been able to create no less than 208 phylacteries, all of which must be destroyed in order to effectively kill him. These items are scattered across Faerun and are rendered resistant to all divination spells to the point that even gods cannot discern their location. They take the shape of 208 bones of his former apprentice.

Note 2: Aumvor is stated to have access to all spells standard in the Player's Handbook, as well as many others that are not elaborated on; as such, they have been ignored for the purposes of this profile. It is understood that he potentially has these abilities, but without further elaboration they cannot be added.
