Pathfinder: Rise of the Rust Monster
The Hooded Stranger
A tall, silent, inscruitable figure adorned in a black robe.
Seemingly an undead Necromancer of considerable power, possibly a Lich or Wraith it crossed paths with the party when they became agents of the Elf courier Tatatiel who was transporting a small box to a mountain kingdom.
Enraged, the hooded stranger would stop at nothing for the box which ultimately Ash gave it. When asked why it wanted the box the being would only comment about “redemption”, “making up for past mistakes”, and “a second chance”.
For such an item the hooded stranger gave the party information about the eight and gifted some of them with additional power after which it left, seemingly for good.
