Rise of the Northern Star
The ruler of Tzatli’s ghosts is as cold and deadly as the icy wastes around the Far Northern necropolis. For almost a century after the fall of Tzatli, Shogun Widowmaker tried to guide the survivors’ descendants. As the North grew colder, however, his people moved South and ice covered his abandoned city. Cold, time and isolation froze away every passion except that for revenge on the Dragon-Blooded for the fall of his city. Shogun Widowmaker murders anyone who dares to oppose him, and while ghosts usually return from such a second death, few in Tzatli dare defy the shogun. This ancient ghost would have made an excellent Deathlord, except he lacked the pre-existing force of Essence the Neverborn needed to empower their mightiest servants. The recent return of mortals to Tzatli in Creation stirs the city’s ghosts from their centuries of stasis.
Shogun Widowmaker looks like he once was a strong man, but his body is shriveled and blackened with frostbite. He wears his iron-gray hair twisted into a topknot. The Shogun of Tzatli wears a blackened jade suit of First Age articulated plate armor and carries an unusual weapon called a chain daiklave.
