|Location:||Old Man's Bridge|
Mosul appears to be an old man sitting on a bridge and fishing, in the The Shadowy Forest. However, upon talking to him, he claims to have been around since at least when Romania was known as Dacia. This would put in in Romain around 100 AD.
He is perhaps one of the Immortals. His talk of cycles of violence may refer to the various Ages. And, he also seems to indicate that he was present at the end of the Second Age when the Hell Dimension was closed off from our Earth
