The great trickster, the Traveler is a deity of cunning, deception, and change. The Traveler is a consummate shapechanger and master of disguises, and thus the being’s true nature is unknown—texts variously refer to the Traveler as "it" rather than "he" or "she." Many doppelgangers, shifters, lycanthropes, thieves, and rogues revere the Traveler, as do a few artificers who focus on the deity’s innovation and cleverness.

The Traveler is sometimes called the Giver of Gifts, but proverbs warn that one must be wary of its gifts. The Traveler seems to have no connection, familial or otherwise, to any of the known gods.

The Traveler’s commandments must often be inferred, for its holy texts are few. Its tenets are:

* Revealing your true self is weakness. Shroud yourself in misdirection and disguise so that even you do not know what dwells in your core.
* Nothing is permanent. Ensure that change improves your lot and damages your enemies.
* The best weapons are cunning plans and intricate deceptions. Mortal minds are predictable and easily manipulated.

There are as many theories of the Traveler's origin as it has forms:

*An ancient trickster god who survived its pantheon's destruction.
*An archfey from the First World.
*Asmodeus getting his jollies.
*A heretofore unknown ascendant who completed the Test of the Starstone.
