The Bride in Black (Lesser Epic Boss)
rating: +1+x

By Mailanka

The Bride in Black defies the typical notions of a Wraith, with flawless pale skin, blood-stained lips, hauntingly beautiful eyes and long, silken white hair. She wears baroque, black plate mail that conforms perfectly to her form, as though forged for her. The small slip of a girl wields a massive sword as long as she is as though it weighed as much as a feather.

According to legend, she was a prized princess of a now forgotten kingdom who was kidnapped before her wedding and locked into the ruby-adorned choker that now rests on her neck, forcing her to become a wraith in the necromancer's service. Now she serves as his chief lieutenant, commanding his forces in his stead, leading the forces from the front, carving through her foes with breathtaking ease. Sometimes, in battle, tears leak down her unemotional face.

Nobody remembers her real name.
