The Golden Hand of Benevar
Sipness was a Lizardfolk Warrior/Adept who served the High Priestess of Aberdeen. He was sent by his mistress to protect Jasko from the Belal Keepers. He did not impart much about his mistress to the party, but mentioned that he saw a vision of Jasko in danger, which compelled him to arrive in Alti. Sipness was a shorter than average lizardman with a long tail that faded from green to a bronze, almost gold tip. He was unclothed except for a small mirror, attached to a gold chain hung around his neck. He wielded a large club and carried a shield made from a hard tortoise shell. Sipness had been apart from his own people for many years, so he was more comfortable around other humanoids and less affected by stigma.
Sipness died protecting the party from a horde of wraiths unleashed once they had secured the pendant from the Svirfneblin mines. He entrusted the mirror of Aberdeen to Jasko during his last breaths.
