"Do not be afraid. I am Ang the Ephemeral, a Ritualist trainer. I have served Master Togo and the monastery for some years now, though time does not pass for me as it does for you, so I am not certain how long exactly... In any case, I do not think I can help you, since you are not studying the Ritualist arts."
Ang the Ephemeral is wearing what looks like the armor of an Ascalon guard. This may hint that he has his origins in Tyria.
