Monster memory[]


A black slayer steps out of the shadows. Its body is twisted by the chaos it serves, its visage causes dread in the noblest of hearts. To encounter a black slayer is to encounter death, and your only hope is that you are not its target for at least then you may die quickly.

Females only

An agent sent by the lords of chaos to kill a powerful opponent of chaos or to punish a servant who proved unworthy. The slayer will not hesitate to kill people standing between her and her goal. To make obvious the powers they serve black slayers are completely cloaked in black, shimmering with strange dark hints of color.
