Dwarf on Back
Vile manipulator of the undead
This is a vile, evil man who features mysterious necrotic and illusive powers. He’s capable of controlling various types of undead with a mere thought.
The Puppeteer was first spotted in brief when the Shadowdale Temple of Bahamut was attacked while the Friends of Dwarf on Back was in communication with Cardinal Dragonheart. He entered the temple behind Dragonheart and bared fangs, to which Dragonheart responded by attempting to turn him, to which The Puppeteer responded with laughter.
More recently, The Puppeteer was found “entertaining” an audience of enthralled undead. When the Friends arrived, he immediately jumped to the attack. Fortunately, the party was able to bring him low before too long.
