Owner of the bookshop (Adventure Shop) on Sildon Lane, seller of adventures, and a good judge of character. He is short, round, and balding and talks a lot but also listens more than he lets on. He enjoys tea. He is at least 400 years old. The magic of his shop helps keep him young.

A former adventurer? Maybe? (Book 1 pg 14) Very old? (Book 1 pg 37)
