The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Necromancer from Thay
Hamun Kost is a stout, red-robed figure with sallow skin, a shaved scalp, and a black tattoo on his forehead. Kost’s garb is typical for Thay, a land far to the east where wizards pattern their flesh with tattoos. The tattoo on the head represents a wizard’s school of magic. Kost’s school is necromancy. Kost is tight-lipped about the reason for his presence in the region. He paid a group of adventurers to remove the orcs at Wyvern Tor, since they scouted out his camp and seem inclined to cause trouble. He also wishes to learn the name of the wizard who built the tower at Old Owl Well, where he currently makes camp.
