Sophistos is a powerful, learned necromancer. He was once the guardian of the Black Grimoire. He was supposed to destroy it, rather than let it fall into Victor's hands. Only he knows whether he succeeded in destroying it, or if he didn't, where it is now.
In the aftermath of the final fight in the Water Gateway, Death tells Scarlett that she must find Sophistos and make sure he destroyed the Black Grimoire. Once she's in the Outer City, several people will suggest that an old associate, Nox, may be able to help Scarlett find him.
Much of Scarlett's early efforts will be about finding word about Sophistos. The following specific quests involve him directly:
- The Dark Tower - Get inside Sophistos's laboratory in the Old Furnace.
