The Stranger is the minion of a vast cosmic being on another plain of reality. This benign godthing has decided to catalogue and classify everything. Absolutely everything and everyone. In order to accomplish that before the end of time, this shadowy figure uses things like the Stranger.

Not having any social graces or innate respect for anything in our dimension, it picks it's targets and bluntly confronts them. Preferably in isolation to reduce the number of variables that will determine the outcome of a fight, though not really patient. The Stranger is resigned to it's lot in life. Working for uberbeings makes it kind of hard to quit, not that it has other aspirations. It's always been a fighter, so while "content" is too strong a feeling, it's not complaining. Being used to a position of total authority as an evaluator, Void City makes the Stranger uncomfortable because that degree of separation is gone. Nevertheless, it has a mission...
