The Shadow Archetype
Using the shadows as a cloak, users of this archetype prefer to extinguish the lives of their victims without ever being seen. The Shadow archetype makes use of toxins and deception to weaken targets before dealing a fatal blow. Shadow users are heralds of death—by the time you’ve seen one, you’re already dead.
