Raythen is a playable hero obtained in the Raythen Lieutenant Pack. It previously appeared as an Ally in the Labyrinth of Ruin campaign.


Escaping the certain death of the Dunwarr expedition massacre, this clever rogue understands one simple thing: the greater the stakes, the greater the payoff. Not one to be easily frightened off, he knows there has to be something valuable left in Sudanya to create this kind of brutal response. Whatever riches may be found, Raythen just needs to find another group of rubes - or rather stalwart heroes - capable of getting him there.

Raythen cannot be chosen as a hero when playing the Labyrinth of Ruin campaign.
