Owner of The Art of Scrapyard Maintenance, or the "Scrap Hut", in Esbeth.
He’s a small, middle aged man with walnut skin, completely bald, dressed in sandals and a brown shift which might once have passed for an ancient monk’s cowl, before it got completely covered in oil stains. He is perched cross-legged upon a big shipping crate, surrounded on all sides by meticulously cleaned metal parts and pieces. He looks at you placidly.
