Ghouls are creatures that infest the perilous wasteland known as The Wastes. They are ruled by Vex, Leader of the Ghouls, and serve as part of The Death Army of The Wastes. They are known for their grey skin, and their savage and murderous nature.
Ghouls are extremely loyal to Vex, and follow his every command. This caused them to participate in The War of The Wastes, but since Vex was arrested after the Battle of the Planes, they did not participate in The War of The Wastes II.
Ghouls have appeared in Elementia ever since The Wastes was formed, and have been ruled by different leaders throughout the years. All ghouls are born and raised in The Wastes, and are trained in battle there.
Vex, Leader of the Ghouls, decided to challenge the previous Leader of the Ghouls, and faced him in battle. Eventually Vex won, and took over as the new Leader of the Ghouls. He could then control every ghoul in Elementia. Having heard of his power, Vlad Kronin sought out Vex, and asked him to join The Death Army of The Wastes as a general. Vex accepted, and gave Vlad the previous leader's head.
During The War of The Wastes, Vlad sent Vex and the ghouls to the South Desert, to try and expand the reach of The Death Army of The Wastes. During his venture into the desert, Vex was attacked by Mortas, Leader of the South Desert, and his army. The two forces battled, and Mortas started winning. Vex soon gained the upper hand as he called for more ghouls to aid him, and they soon defeated Mortas and his forces. Mortas was spared by Vlad, and was made a general in his army, due to his power and skills as a leader.
Vex and the ghouls went on to aid Vlad during the Battle of the Planes, which went on for many days. The battle ended with The Great Elementian Army winning, and Vlad disappearing. Commander Harlow arrested Vex, and incarcerated him in a secret prison.
Due to Vex's incarceration, the ghouls were not able to participate in The War of The Wastes II.
