Cocytus was ordered by his master Ainz Ooal Gown to take charge of leading the undead army of Nazarick and used them to wipe out the lizardmen located in the Great Lake. Seeing that his own army is about to be defeat by the lizardmen, Cocytus began to seek out a request from Demiurge. Left with no other choice, he deploys his trump card the sub-commander Iguva=41 onto the battlefield.
