Senior Cloak Rastol Shan (RASS-tull SHAN)[edit | edit source]
Unbeknownst to the population of Mulmaster (including the High Blade) the Senior Cloak of Mulmaster, Rastol Shan, is a lich. He also has a deeper secret, his true identity is that of Thurdan Tallwand, the serving senior cloak during the rule (and subsequent fall) of Rassendyll Uoumdolphin. To facilitate his deception, Rastol is never seen without his most distinguishing feature, an elaborate, mithral mask. The long, white hair he wore in life is only slightly thinner in death, and spells and heavy perfume mask features remain that would betray his true nature. He is a cold, calculating man who supports the Blades in their dealings on the surface, but that loyalty would dissolve in an instant were he able to find a chink in their armor and assume control of the city for himself. While he is unaware of the cult's presence in the city (for now), he may view them as a means to take control of Mulmaster.
