The Master of the Dark Cloaks.
Scholar? No doubt. Necromancer? Certainly. Someone with a hidden agenda? You bet.
Few have ever met the Master, yet his influence can be found all around Sosaria, through the workings of his minions. Fewer still have ever hear the Master's true name - a closely guarded secret of the Cloaks, who only ever refer to him as "The Master".
The Master appears human. But there are those who know better.
