Savage Rifts: Bystander
Bystanders, as they have come to be called, are mysterious humanoids with glowing eyes, who are found at the site of active Rifts, especially those that are newly opened and about to close.
They generally keep a low profile and ignore all attempts to communicate with them, their sole concern seems to be watching the activity around Riftst. If approached they will teleport to a new vantage point and if attacked they will defend themselves with the Stun or Banish power first. They will do their best not to permanently harm any being they come across. They generally remain at a Rift until whatever they wished to witness occurs, but will Teleport away as a last resort.
The infamous dimensional scholar, Vigo Perrin, believes they are the followers of the Titan, Argus and act on his behalf in recording and cataloguing the Rifts. Perrin claims to have spent several weeks with Argus at the Titan's Manse in the clouds above what used to be Denver, CO. He claims that Argus is served by one-hundred Bystanders, though he refers to them as his Skopes.
