A darkly inked fetish master can be found in the Scatter in the Rift. This creature is a child-like voodoo witch doctor, drawing upon elaborate inked designs on its skin for its dark powers. The masters cast mostly Sorcerer spells and can summon a cluster of wooden dolls on their current target, who would lay down a barrage of attacks.

Dark-ringed eyes stare out of a face that is gaunt and ashen as a darkly inked fetish master looks on. Beginning at its hairline, a labyrinthine pattern of tattoos in ebon ink crawl across the fetish master's skin, spanning brow and cheeks alike. The designs sheath every inch of exposed skin not shrouded beneath its tattered robes. In a grotesque display, the fetish master's lips have been peeled back from its gums, secured in place by a set of discolored hooks. Perhaps not the intention, but the effect creates a perpetual, toothy grin that seems to hold no amusement, but ample amounts of malice.

With all the skill and care of a mender, the fetish master takes a needle from its belt and threads it through with a length of wire. Every so slowly, it begins to stitch your mouth and eyes shut.
