The Last Wanderers of Solomon Kane
He is an ancient African shaman, who is driven to study magic. He has traveled the world in ancient times as a slave, secretly studying under various sorcerers and holy men of the Middle and Near East. In Judea he acquired the Staff of Solomon, which he later gave to Solomon Kane to aid him in his wanderings. N’Longa’s magical powers derive from his ability to send his spirit out of his body. He can take over the bodies of the living and dead through this method, to communicate with Solomon Kane through the Staff of Solomon, and also summons the vultures by sending his spirit to parley with them. The full extent of N’Longa’s power is unknown, but he convinced Solomon Kane that he is not evil as he has opportunity after opportunity to use his magic for his own selfish needs but hasn’t. Convinced that the work of Solomon Kane must be continued, N’Longa guides Wanderers through their dreams.
