The Black Reaper
The Black Reaper is a tall, gray-skinned humanoid who carries around an enormous sword. He has quickly been gaining a reputation as a cold, emotionless killer; someone who should be treated with respect. The exact origins of The Black Reaper are a mystery, some say he is a demon of the shadowfell; others say he is a human who gained dark and terrifying powers. In any case, it is commonly assumed he is a servant of the Raven Queen; the whispered tales about him and his hatred of the undead seem to support that fact. In addition, some have noticed his sword bears a striking resemblance to a sword wielded by the legendary dragon rider, Valez Du’Urth, who also served The Raven Queen. Valez’s sword is missing from its shrine in Lysian. According to several witnesses, The Black Reaper has even claimed to be the living embodiment of The Raven Queen’s will on this plane, but who could be bold enough to make such a claim? One thing is certain, no one is bold enough to ask The Black Reaper about this directly.
