The truth behind the Raven Roost bandits’ rise to power is a trio of shadar-kai, shadow cloaked elves. Travelling far from their homes, they gained respect in the outlaw society of the Vale for their brutal, merciless displays of power and violence. It took them mere weeks to convince the outlaw population of the southern Vale to join them, offering leadership and instruction that the bandits sorely needed.

Geriesh was a former spymaster and assassin for his warlord, and has maintained this role within Raven Roost. He directs those bandits and new recruits who show promise in the arts of stealth and murder, training harriers and cutthroats. He rarely has need to leave the manor these days, but does on occasions where his experience and expertise is vital.

Originally from the 4e Monster Vault: Threats to the Nentir Vale.

Evasion. If Geriesh is subjected to an effect that allows him to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, Geriesh takes no damage if he succeeds on the saving throw, and only half damage if he fails.
Shadow Leap (Recharge 5-6). As a bonus action, Geriesh can teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space he can see.
Sneak Attack (1/Turn). Geriesh deals an extra 14 (4d6) damage when he hits a target with a weapon attack and has advantage on the attack roll, or when Geriesh is within 5 feet of the target and no other creature is within 5 feet of the target and Geriesh doesn’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.
Swiftshadow Master. Each creature of Geriesh’s choice within 25 feet of him has advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks.
Geriesh makes two melee attacks.
Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6+4) piercing damage.
Dagger. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., or range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d4+4) piercing damage.
Poisoned Dagger (1/Short Rest). Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., or range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d4+4) piercing damage plus 7 (2d6) poison damage, and if the target is a creature it must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 minute. While poisoned in this way, the target’s speed is reduced to 0, and it takes 5 (1d10) poison damage at the start of each of its turns. The poisoned target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.
Uncanny Dodge.
Geriesh halves the damage that he takes from an attack that hits him. Geriesh must be able to see the attacker.
