Heroes of Uldanaaq
Laurtec is a rather secretive warrior who travels constantly with two ghosts. His golden armor would indicate that he might be a paladin, but he has never displayed divine ability.
Laurtect first met the group in the Dinosaur pit in which he showed the Masters of Midnight to safety, though this safety was somewhat false as the group was then attacked by flameskulls, who killed many of the adventurers. Laurtec did offer to help resurrect the dead comrades for a price at a shady alter after discovering cultists attempting to sacrifice a group of paladins. He also gave Khrystal an enchanted necklace to help charm members of the opposite sex.
After splitting with the group for a while, they found him raiding chests in the crypts below and attacked him, wanting the loot for themselves. Laurtec revealed he had the power to control certain members of the group. Though he eventually fled, the group did diplomatically talk with Laurtec about keeping the Dragon Orbs he found as that was the object of their quest. Supposedly, Laurtec could part with the orbs because he came for a particular item that a client wanted for which he would be paid greatly.
