Mirror was a ghost that manifested in the Sunrise Mountains in Thay.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Mirror was usually perceived as a phosphorescence floating through the air, which sometimes assumed a manlike shape[1] and could momentarily take on the semblance of a nearby person or sculpture.[2] During the years he spent at Bareris Anskuld's side, he apparently remembered more of his past and sometimes showed a wavering semblance of what had been his own living face: a lean visage with a big hooked nose and a drooping mustache. He even began to speak occasionally.[3]

CombatEdit

Mirror was once a master swordsman and at most times carried the semblance of a sword in his hand.[1] He could not be hurt by normal weapons or even most magical attacks.[4] Sometimes, he wore something resembling a round shield or targe affixed to his free forearm.[5]

Unlike other undead creatures, Mirror seemed to be unaffected or harmed by sunlight.[6]

AbilitiesEdit

When Mirror remembered that he once was a knight bestowed with god-given powers, he was able use these powers though they seemed to be a drain on his very substance. On the first occasion, he cured Aoth Fezim's spellplague-affected sight.[7] During another desperate situation, he summoned a radiance like daylight from his sword, driving away other undead beings.[8] Sometimes he is refereed to a being a paradox of light and dark and there fore healing him might upset the balance, and there fore it is best to let him heal him self. The healing seams to come naturally as he remembers more of what is left of his self.[9] Like other ghosts and phantasms he has the power of flight.

HistoryEdit

Mirror was once a brave and accomplished warrior, though as a ghost he forgot his name and face. In his lifetime, Mirror fell victim to the power of the wizard Fastrin the Delver, who destroyed his people and the kingdom they lived in. Mirror rose again as a ghost.[10] He existed in this state for centuries.[11]

On the 7 of Kythorn in 1375 DR[12] the bard Bareris Anskuld stumbled into his domain, Mirror helped him fend off his undead pursuers and stayed with him from thereon. His former companion, Quickstrike, explained to Bareris that Mirror would need something to reflect, to fill and define him.[11] During the time spent with Bareris, Mirror began to sense that he was a soldier who had fought many times.[5]

On the 14'th of Kythorn of the same year at the fight of Thazar Keep, he slayed Ysval's companion Shex and helped in the defeat of the Nighthaunt himself.[13]

As the war went on Mirror sought to sometimes counsel his friends in chivalry in order to bring them closer to do good, this sometimes brought comments from his companions such as: "there isn't any brotherhood, you're getting it confused with something from your own time!" [14]

After around a hundred years with Baris, Mirrior started to speak more. and seams to be able to use more of his divine powers yet the gods name still remained a mystery to all. He even went so far as to consider his devotion and power to keep the grate Szass tam from being able to control him despite his undeath.

In the battle of the Rebel Zulkirs against Szass Tam after the death of Springhill, Mirror attacked Szass Tam, impaling the lich with his sword and channeling the power of his deity as a previous not shown degree. The amount of power released even harmed Baris on the other side of the lich whom also attacked the lich, in the end the power released from him proved fatal to him as he disapeared with the radiant light. After that Szass said "He's gone to his god, you go to your woman" before killing Anskuld.[15]


BackgroundEdit

During the time he spent with Bareris, Mirror sometimes journeyed to his inner self, remembering bits of his past. On such a "journey" he saw himself in a torch-lit hall with a huge round table in its center. Around it high-backed chairs were positioned, each seat inlaid with a name and a coat of arms,[16] though Mirror couldn't recognize his own. In that hall, a statue was positioned made of solid gold, adorned with rubies, and showing a handsome, smiling man brandishing a mace in one hand and cradling an orb in the other. Mirror was kneeling before the sacred image. Though he couldn't remember the name of his god, Mirror remembers being a knight blessed by his god with special gifts, much like a paladin.[17] He remembered that in life he could help the sick even when the wisest priests had failed.[18]
