During the funeral rite of a passed spouse, a holy man will place a spell over the widowed husband or wife. The spell creates what is called a mourning mask, which hovers in front of their face for all to see but them. The mask is a manifestation of their grief and will remain so long as they mourn the death of their loved one. Once they come to terms with the loss, the mask dissipates.
It is not uncommon for officers of the law to attend the mourning mask ceremony when the death was not of natural causes. If the mask dissipates immediately, the widowed individual could become the prime suspect in their investigation.
