ABOUT

A sombreron looks like a short person, clad all in black, with a large black hat obscuring its features. It travels from place to place, taking the role of the wandering musician, leaving longing and despair in its wake. The sombreron is more often heard than seen, working its fey charms before its peculiar appearance can be noted.

Dark Admirer. Dressed in finery, the sombreron typically travels on a black riding horse, or driving a wagon with four mules. It is said to love black hair, beguiling horses and attractive young people and braiding their hair in their sleep.

Lost Hearts. While initially appearing charming, the sombreron eventually chooses a target and finds opportunities to approach them alone and enthrall them with beautiful guitar-playing. A victim who has been enchanted gets no benefit from sleep and finds food tasteless and unsatisfying. The unfortunate victim may waste away unless the curse is broken.
