"She is known as Elkenrod.
She once was a beautiful healer who cured the sick and soothed those in pain.
Now on the side of darkness, she feeds off the pain and suffering of her captives.
The greater their suffering, the more power she wields."

- In-game introductory text for the Terrestrial Plane of Fire
Chakan, Sega Genesis

-------

"Scale the rotting, death-tainted walls to the bastion of the sadistic Elkenrod, Mistress of Spectres. Biting swarms of bats push and peck you. The fiery breath of Elkenrod's ghostly victims singes your face. Lava-spewing gargoyles portend things more horrible to come. In the purple shroud of sunset you fight winged imps and flame spitters, while huge goat-footed cyclops hurl boulders to dash you into the furnace pits below."

- Instruction manual description of the Portal to the Terrestrial/Elemental Planes of Fire
Chakan, Sega Genesis

-------

Elkenrod, Mistress of Spectres, is one of the legendary evil forces that must be slain in 1992's Sega Genesis and Game Gear Chakan: The Forever Man video games. She is a "boss" opponent that can be found on the top floor of the third segment of the Terrestrial Plane of Fire world in the Genesis incarnation, and at the end of Level IV, behind a series of locked doors, in the Game Gear version. The Chakan video games are based on the graphic novels of the same name created by Robert A. Kraus (R.A.K. Graphics.)

While Elkenrod typically relies on her flame-spewing traps and monstrous minions (bats, gargoyles, ghosts, rats, skeletons, and zombies) to deal with any intruders that break into her ebony keep, anyone foolish enough to mistake this for cowardice is in for a rude awakening should they manage to win their way through to Elkenrod's throne room and gain her undivided attention. The Mistress of Spectres will be quite happy to give uninvited guests a lethal demonstration of her legendary combat skills: a dizzying barrage of sword slashes, flying kicks, and fireballs awaits any would-be hero. Of course, being immortal, death at Elkenrod's lovely hands is only a temporary, albeit extremely painful, inconvenience for Chakan, The Forever Man.
