Azrael is a manipulator of the highest caliber. He has taken the role of everything from a Grand Vizier quietly controlling a kingdom to a snake oil salesman peddling his wares between villages over his centuries of servitude. Many peoples around the world have myths and legends of a silver tongued stranger who brings death and misfortune with him and then flees before he can be brought to justice. This is almost universally Azrael wearing one of his many disguises. Azrael collects souls for Levistus and he has a quota to meet. Failure means death. He has now been ordered to join The Evil Doers and assist them in their conflicts.
