The Umbriferous Man is a source of much conjecture among Abyss Mystics — the main questions being whether it is a humanoid(or shadows coalescing to form one), or whether there are many Umbriferous Men.
To select visitors, the Umbriferous Man will speak in a hundred languages at once, and pose riddles with splendid rewards for those who solve them. Failing to solve such a riddle has no immediate aftermath, contrary to Lasombra tales. Yet, all who fail know the Umbriferous Man will — one night — claim them from the shadows of the world above.
Cainites disappear from their havens, no evidence of their passing remaining. That is, except for shadows permanently imprinted in corners of the room. The Umbriferous Man is a tall figure clad in multiple swirling rags and cloaks, his yellow eyes barely visible through layers of swaddling. Despite the coverage, his voices ring clearly from his mouth, and he treats all visitors to the Abyss kindly.
If attacked, the Umbriferous Man attempts to fight back, but he is no adept combatant. He’s said to carry thousands of pieces of silver that spill from his bandages upon death. Any who take the coins disappear soon after.
