The Head Mystic came to be in the Wilderness after following the spiritual voices of the revenants. They led him to discover the portal to the Primordial Realm, and in hopes of helping the spiritual divinities set up a camp around the portal and began to gather sacred clay in order to build the war spirits new bodies with the help of his fellow followers.
The head mystic has covered his eyes with a blindfold in hopes of communicating with the spiritual ones better. He has claimed that with the right amount of concentration he has been able to even see the Gods. His helpers, the mystics, (goblin, dwarf, etc.) have all left their jobs to make statues for the revenants
