|~ Stephen Amber|
Stephen Amber was a wizard in life that was murdered by his family. After death, he cast a never-ending curse of madness and insanity- his family and their manor were doomed to fade into the mist of Averoigne. Amber was encountered by the party led by Braniman and his allies after exploring his mansion- they entered his tomb and made way to his burial site, eventually putting him to peace.
After peace was found, his restful soul appeared to the group and granted them wishes.
Stephen Amber is, in theory, a relatively average looking pale-skinned man with gaunt features and dark brown hair. He is taller than most and bears a striking wound on one side of his face. He requires a cane to walk. Of course, this is merely an illusion- he is dead when the adventurers find him, a conscious projecting itself onto reality.
Amber is (or, more accurately, was) a wrathful wizard in his life, leading his family to a position of power over their original region. However, he held this power, not the family, and made sure that was known, leading to his eventual murder. After his death and the purification of his soul, he became amicable and relatively kind, removing the curse upon the Castle Amber.
