Lord of the Pale Manor
The Lord of the Pale Manor is an unusual being. He exists in his manor’s pocket dimension, which is only accessible by a few key portals throughout the known world. He lived for the longest time with his daughter, the Blood Witch. No one knows how old the Lord is, nor his actual name- not even he. He exists to learn, to understand, and to comprehend the fabric of the universe.
On a cruise, he thought he witnessed an Aspect of Orcus destroy his daughter, who was, unbeknownst to him, the Blood Witch. The party aided him in the fight, though it pushed him to the brink of existence regardless.
Upon entering his abode, the party discovers his secret to immortality and revitalization. The Lord of the Pale Manor is a lich lord. Somehow he is still able to maintain rational thought, a feat for most liches.
His powers are nearly that of a demigod, his home’s wards are impressive, and he has a treasure trove- both literally, and of knowledge. He good be of great help to the party.
