The tribe this spirit is from is unknown to the Linderen world, but most wizards theorize them to come sometime deep in the past.

They appear most often a red skinned man with an axe, slowly creeping up on unsuspecting people. Most often for some reason these spirits inhabit forest hotels and plague and haunt the owners of a given establishment.

Reds, or Redskins or Red Banes as they are most often called-- are invisible mostly to the naked eye until the trick of looking behind oneself, not one way or once, but the second time one looks behind oneself, does the spirit appear. They follow people mostly along paths of forests but have also been known to dwell in hotel rooms of travelers. Red men or banes hack the scalp off a person (they don't attack beasts or mutants) and leave them for dead.
