Mortanis in his original necromancer form.

Mortanis is a boneguard world boss located in the House of the Chosen in Maldraxxus while the world quest N [60EEWQ] Mortanis is available.

Baron Vyraz ordered Head Summoner Perex to summon Mortanis. Perex found this to be a preposterous idea due to the anima drought and messaged Vyraz back that he'd need to "scrounge up some anima if he wants his boneguard",[1] which is apparently also what happened.
