Legend of the Leviathan
A dark-haired halfling travelling the sword coast in service of his unnamed patron, scoping out business opportunities and the like. He belongs to the same organisation as the group that was looking to take over ravenstone but doesn’t seem very sympathetic towards them.
He later admitted to the group that he had been indebted to the Zhentarim, the organisation controlling the “merchants” in Ravenstone, and had been working to pay of his debt to them. After a year of work and because of what happened in Ravenstone he has finally paid the debt. He joined the Lords’ Alliance shortly after.
