TACTICS

Casts invisibility sphere, then blink and mass bull’s strength before combat. Prefers to engage foes inside of his prison in melee, casting rage on the first round of combat. He saves crushing despair and charm monster to use against foes who attack him with ranged attacks beyond the limits of this room. He has no choice but to fight to the death. (Note that the EL 7 of the encounter accounts for the fact that he is confined and cannot leave his prison)
