I can do anything I want. And here, as in my world, the only obstacle to my transcendence is you. To become all that I am capable of becoming, you must die. It's my destiny...and my pleasure.
— Mysterious Stranger
The Mysterious Stranger, also known as the Grand High Sovereign, is the ostensibly alternate reality version of the Snaff Savant who came out of the portal created by the Infinity Ball. This version of the Savant had gone evil and conquered Tyria with their creations, the steam creatures. Ultimately the Sovereign and their ally, Grand Vice Admiral Shodd, were defeated by the Snaff Savant, Shodd, and Zojja as soon as they appeared in 1325 AE, ending the threat before it could spread.

- The appearance of the Mysterious Stranger will be exactly like the player character, except the Mysterious Stranger will be wearing the Adept asuran racial armor and wields a Peacemaker Rifle.
- Despite their claims, the Mysterious Stranger and Grand Vice Admiral Shodd do not actually come from an alternate reality but from a potential future that exists within the Mists, suggesting that they may have been fractal anomalies which manifested because of the Infinity Ball.
