Denthen is a Kasatha (Bestiary 4) seeking his way home to the planes that bases himself in Andoran initially hoping to find the secrets back to his world.  But the intrigue and adventure that holds in the capital of Almas has called to the Kasantha’s adventuring nature and his purely magus instincts have given way to quiet adventures of the thieves highway.  He has taken on the role of the Ninja and is slowly immersing himself in everything illegal and fraught with danger that he can find.

Denthen exists on the outskirts of society and functions as an intermediary for those that would seek out the black market in the city.  He uses his skills to trail potential customers along with potential targets also.  He is a collector of tales and rumour and is well in the know of many of the intrigues that make their way through the city from time to time.

A formidable foe, the Kasathan mainly employs a weapon in each of his four hands.  A Katana, two wakizashi and a nunchaku for good measure.  His Katana is his prized weapon and the focus for much of his magus abilities.  It is rumoured that he took the katana from his father’s dead hands after his family was murdered by a Cheliax Hell Knight for spying on members of the court.
