The Grandfather always conceals his face with a mask and is said to be immortal. In truth once a Grandfather gets old and dies a new one is chosen to take his place. This superstition that the Grandfather cannot die is one of the guilds many terror weapons. Parents local to Vaasa and Damara often threaten naughty children by telling them that the Grandfather will come take them away if they don't behave.
