Leader of the Spirit Blades
Walter Mann was born in 1940 and joined the Spirit Blades at a young age. Devoting considerable time and effort to maintaining his youth, Walter now appears to be in his early 40s, despite a true age of almost twice that. True immortality eludes him, however.
Following the example set by his predecessor, Walter has attempted to capture and study Richard Merchant on several occasions, but never succeeded in reproducing his abilities.
Fortunately, the Spirit Blades have very little information on Richard’s identity or true abilities.
