Soul Walker
Soul Walker
Hello from the Magic Tavern character
First appearance: "Soul Walker"
Portrayed by: Ross Bryant
Information
Name: Soul Walker
Species: Soul Walker
Occupation: Minion
Affiliation: The Dark Lord

A Soul Walker is a necromantic creature in a rotting shell made up of multiple souls. They are created by necromancers, often at the behest of The Dark Lord.

The Soul Walker that came to the tavern was sent by the Dark Lord to learn more of Arnie, He Who Can Travel Between Worlds. In exchange for learning how Arnie can travel between dimensions it offered to let him see Sarah … by dismembering corpses and making a new Sarah. It was defeated by Arnie erasing the rune on its forehead.

A desperate Arnor the Warrior, whose last few years of memories were removed by a spell cast by Usidore, later encountered the Soul Walker which restored his full memories and his testicles in exchange for serving the Dark Lord. Arnor's brand new pair of testicles can sing (but may possibly grow in size until they burst from his scrotum). The newly-restored Arnor, now travelling with the Soul Walker, swore to exact his revenge against Arnie and Usidore for what they had done.

Arnor and his new best friend the Soul Walker later confronted Arnie and the gang at Chunt's hovel. The Soul Walker was eventually defeated once more, this time by appealing to its individual souls and freeing all seven. Arnor was so happy to have all these new best friends that he forgot about the vendetta and he and the freed souls left to go camping.

The Soul Walker is played by Ross Bryant.

Appearance

An animated shambling corpse, withered and desiccated, inhabited by multiple dead souls. They normally can carry as many as seven separate souls, but in rare cases, a Soul Walker will require 13 souls to function, as is the case with the one who came to the tavern. It has been said that cutting the head off a Soul Walker will cause it to sprout new heads, one for each soul. Defeating a Soul Walker will generate a corpse for each soul it contained.

Powers

The extent of a Soul Walker's powers are unknown, but they can cast dark spells, including a spell that will sew shut a person's mouth. Soul Walkers are immortal unless destroyed.

Communication

They speak by each soul taking turns speaking one word apiece, resulting in an otherworldly speech cadence and refer to themselves in the third person. A Soul Walker can allow a single soul to assume full control (and in rare cases, one will forcibly take control). They can be defeated by rubbing out the rune that appears atop their forehead. If this is not possible, and you are brave and quick-witted enough, you can try to convince a single soul to rebel against the group mind. Those who have come into contact with these rebellious souls have reported that their existence is a horrible living death and wish to be freed as soon as possible.

Souls

The souls trapped within the Soul Walker have included:

  • Crispix Versin Generix, a troubadour in the realm of Grimfallon. He was always only second best until the Dark Lord gave him the ability to play beautiful music on his rimhorn. Crispix's favorite art is perversion.
  • Jarrix, who loved a woman unrequitedly. The Dark Lord gave him glamours to seduce her in exchange for their first born.
  • Amon, the beekeeper of Fintar
  • Lady Mirabelle, who lived in the North

Notes

  • The Soul Walker addressed Usidore as Fi’ang Yalok on its first appearance, hinting that at least one of its trapped souls was from the Northeast.
  • Although the Soul Walker contained 13 souls when it first appeared, it had only 7 when it arrived at Chunt's hovel with Arnor.
