Return of the Hydra: prologue
Straton the Abstinent
Bloodbeard's lieutenant and a powerful necromancer.
Bloodbeard‘s lieutenant was a cold-hearted and calculating man, whose indifference to pleasure of any kind was legendary and earned him the nickname ‘Straton the Abstinent’. Many people even suspected the ascetic wizard to be a lich or some other undead creature, not only because of his inhuman looks and behaviour, but also because of his mastery of necromantic rituals. Straton and his son provided the pirate crew with brains and magic, giving them the upper hand in a part of the world where magic was scarce. Rumours say Bloodbeard killed his lieutenant in prison, for he was the only one knowing more about the whereabouts of his treasure.
The survivors of the Hunter found some of Straton’s Hydra Riddles, but will that lead them to the treasure before time runs out?
