An evil ebon saint, with his enhanced ability to hide, his acceptance of the dark, and his strong conviction about the way the world should be, could be set up in direct opposition to the PCs' pursuits,. Organization Each ebon saint is governed by his own chosen system of beliefs. Where those beliefs are challenged by civic author- ity, an ebon saint is viewed as a rebel, or in some instances, a vigilante.

Where they are supported by the community, he is regarded as a hero. In almost all cases, however, an ebon saint and his allies operate outside the bounds of established organization structures. Some ebon saints share beliefs with larger groups and latch on to those organizations to further their own ends. An ebon saint with particular spiritual convictions might become an agent of a particular church, for example. Some saints become convinced that the best way to pursue their personal ideology is to recruit like-minded individuals, so they form their own organizations dedicated to those convictions.

NPC Reactions Ebon saints take pride in remaining unnoticed in the shadows.

An individual ebon saint is far more likely to be judged on his own reputation than his membership in such a nebulous organization. Those NPCs who do know of the ebon saints have an initial attitude of indifferent toward such a character. If they are among the target of the character's beliefs, however, their attitude shifts to unfriendly or even An abon saint counts the darkness as his ally hostile.

Other ebon saints are typically friendly toward such a character based solely on his status as an ebon saint. His Characters with ranks in Knowledge local can research fervent adherence to a cause can provide a handy way to an individual ebon saint to learn more about him.
