    Tughaib   M166 : TUGHAIB™ of the Spirits

    Tughaib, or Tughaib of the Spirits is a handsome woman, born of the harsh highlands and foothills of the Misty Mountains. Said to have Elven blood, she was tall, strong and wily. She had a power, born perhaps of that rumoured Elven blood, but also the product of long years of training and learning at the feet of the priest Eribhen.

    The worship of the Dark has a long history amongst the Daen peoples of the White Mountains and Dunland. Tughaib would become one of its greatest powers. During the plague years a clan of Dunmen fled into the Undeeps of the Misty Mountains, where they perished and lingered on as ghosts and wights. Tughaib, a practitioner of the dark arts and the wielder of the Ghostbane staff, found their lonely tomb in the dark places beneath the world. Armed with the power of the staff, she was able to bend these inquiet spirits to her will. There, in the foothills of the Misty Mountains, overlooking the barren crags of the Dunmen, she dreamed of becoming a power, a queen of ghosts.

    History does not tell precisely what happened to Tughaib of the spirits, but the wise believe some brave souls slew her, and scattered her army of dark things to the spring winds in the mountains.

    The Ghostbane staff was forged by Dwarf smiths in the service of Mordor, in the dark years of the Second Age.
