The Sinister figure is a character that briefly appears at the start of Tales of Nomad. They teleport as soon as they are approached, leaving behind Nomad's memory. They appear again at the end of the miniquest, and may be approached to receive the rewards of the miniquest. If a player's inventory is full, they will remain until enough space is made.
Their robes are identical to those worn by the mysterious figure, "My first master", Oreb, and the hooded pirate.
