Okay, if any of you have seen a CS or an NPC that appeared to be one of these, let's hear about it.
If anyone has lvled SMN to AF and done all the quests, then you should atleast vaguely remember Uran-Maffran, the ex-rhinostery(I think) leader. He dissappeared and erased himself from other's memories. During the fights you will have seen him with a puppet of sorts, and he talks of such puppetry as well. I see Uran-Maffran as being an evil puppet master.
