You are a black staff with a human head. You belong to Major Thomas Weir, the infamous Wizard of West Bow and one of Edinburgh’s most prominent ghosts.  

The once respectable Major was known for his impassioned sermons before confessing to unspeakable crimes in the 17th century. His ghost haunts the West Bow for all eternity, wielding you with his mighty bloodlust. 

But now he has gone missing, you suspect in search of redemption. You must bring him, and those who might have aided him, to heel.
