The Cloak of Shadoo is truly unique.With it’s aid,the wearer can not only assume the appeareance of anyone he kills,but also finds himself in possesion of the victim’s very personality and most secret memories.
Thus,the killer is now able to slip into the comfortable and easy existence of his vcitim,with not even the murded indivual’s loved ones any the wiser.
Unknown to him however,this cloak is actually a sinister trap for the souls of it’s users. In ages past,this cloak was created by the sly and cunning demon,Shadoo,who with the rest of his monstrous kind,realized that the burning desires and greed of men make them easy prey.
The enchantment that allows the wearer to steal the identity of others,leaches his soul so slowly,he fails to notice anything. With every day,he forgets,little by little,who he really is.This gradual loss of his very soul,continues until he has no remembrance of who he was, before he put on the cloak. But the one thing he does recall throughout this process,is that he is not the person every one around him thinks he is.
In the end,when his soul has been completely absorbed by the cloak,he is reduced to the fate of a soulless zombie that has no idea of who or what it is,or even why it continus this charade of pretending to be someone it is not.
Anyone who uses it is fated to become a soulless zombie.The only way the curse on this item can be lifted,is for it’s monstrous creator to be slain.
