a.k.a. The Stranger

The Stranger looms amidst a quartet of unknown adventurers.A creature of unknown (essentially humanoid) species first seen in the Act I Interlude.

She wears yellow leather tightly bound over a thin body that bulges in unsettling and unexpected places. She radiates euphoria and agony. She smells of alien flowers blossoming beneath the red rays of an alien sun. Her eyes are milky pale orbs sans pupil or iris. Her mouth is covered by a yellow scarf, which moves even when she’s not talking. An extremely powerful being, capable of taking out almost an entire party in just a few rounds. Carries a black-bladed rapier, and her bite drains Dexterity.

In the Act I Interlude, it was learned that she was an associate of Gulliver Vatticus, and that fifteen years before the start of the campaign she provided him with “special cargo” on the docks of Cassomir.

She encountered Dora, Grip, Gull, and Ray as 9-year-old children, as seen in visions from the Act I Interlude and Act I Epilogue.

In the Act II Prologue, the scene from the Cassomir docks fifteen years previously continued, and she was seen handing over Grip and Rony to Vatticus.

In a psychometry vision in Chapter 62, Dora learned that she was working on a “device” and a “project” in the crypt of Iris Hill. The party also determined at that time that she was a Denizen of Leng.
