Unsure of him or host that splashed us with Hollowberry Tonic at the embassy.
Dwelled in the body that went by Grounds Kipper.

Me: “Ok. Grounds Kipper. Time to talk”
DM: He doesn’t stop staring at the wall. He says nothing.
Me: “How long have you worked at the tower?”
DM: You see his lips moving, as if whispering.
Me: “CAN YOU HEAR ME? THE TOWER. HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED THERE?”
DM: Frax quickly enters, weapon drawn “Oh. Okay. Holler my name if you need me….” he leaves again.
Kip(whisper): “When man first stood and took a breath, The gods foresight saw only death.”
DM: He turns and stares at you with an intense, unblinking look. He makes eye contact. You feel engrossed in his eyes, but you aren’t certain magic is involved. He continues to stare without blinking. His voice is different. It sounds faded and old.
Shadow: “You have a taste I find exotic. Who hides behind your eyes?”
ME: “What ARE you?! Also don’t go tasting me. That’s just creepy”
Shadow: “I’m the shadow of the great one’s step. The whisper following the divine dirge. I am the marionette of entropy, the decay of things. And this body I have worn since the great one’s left. Show me who hides behind your eyes.”
Me: “… None of those titles sounded nice. I’m gonna pass”
Sam: You suddenly get the feeling it isn’t you who is being assaulted, but the Amethyst Queen. You hear a whisper from your own voice. “Kill him, Pearce! He is using you to track me!”
Me: I run like a bat outta hell.
