Phalaks is a Dactyl Dragonkin responsible for creating the King Black Dragon, and a former student of Kerapac. Some time after creating the King, he and Kerapac parted ways, and he remained within a part of the Grotworm Lair in his laboratory near Kerapac's greatest creation in order to continue studying.
During Hero's Welcome, the corrupted Dragonkin Tarshak comes to him seeking help, but he just dismisses what he says as the ravings of a maniac and offers to send him off to Kerapac in an attempt to mend their relationship. Tarshak senses the player and Phalaks tries to deescalate the situation by throwing a poisoned dragonbane dart at Tarshak. He is surprised when the dart fails to mortally wound Tarshak, and requests the player to defeat him or they will never be able to.
After driving Tarshak away, the player questions Phalaks about where he went. Phalaks deduces that he probably went back to his "sanctum".
After the quest, he returns to the sanctum to collect the Abomination's tissue samples. His experiments and studies of the tissue were met with varying levels of success, although he did discover the hide's unnatural musculature and resistance to damage and spoilage. Due to this, he showed interest in using the hide as armour or leather. In addition, he discovered the Abomination's regenerative properties and made several failed attempts to graft a new head onto its body.
Unsurprisingly, Phalaks displays an amoral attitude towards humans when he captures several of them for study as they were mining the new bane ore rocks.
