Yzafa the Fearsome Bandit
"Yzafa the Fearsome Bandit is a ruthlessly brutal bandit who targets the rich and corrupt. He takes everything from his victims, leaving them as nothing more than a mere memory to the rest of the world.
Some members of Yzafa's crew fear that he's been slowly losing his sanity ever since his run-in with that mysterious, bubbling pool. He called them all cowards as he waded in it. Yzafa tries really hard to control the manic episodes that have been taking control ever since then... Well, not too hard.
With each passing day, more and more of his actions seem like they're controlled by something else. He's become so erratic that some of his men talk of mutiny, even challenging him for control of the crew. They say he can't be trusted. Some of the crew have even tried to fight him. They all lost, of course. It was a mess after. It looked like he couldn't stop the rush of excitement he got from brutally pummeling them, even after they were beat. Some survived these fights, while others didn't. He says he feels terrible about it after, hates it even.
I wonder if he realizes that every fight just makes him more bloodthirsty and uncontrollable.
He tries to keep the sickness to himself and lets everyone think it is all a part of his act, to instill fear in others. He told a few of us to find a healer that can stop the darkness from creeping into his head. Now we steal more and more to so we can pay a healer, once found."
