A man simply known as Eyepatch Guy was a short, stout shopkeeper of
with white hair during the days of the Great Monster Uprising
His one wild eye glowed yellow, seeming to stare into the soul of those
he beheld, while the other was hidden beneath a black eyepatch
embroidered with the words "EAT AT JACK'S."
such as Antharian fish statuettes were sold at his shop, but when THE
came to Anthar he sold food and memorbilia (which included
BERZIO potions and 99% Official DEAD WALK "Back from the Dead"
T-Shirts). As most of the citizens of Anthar fled the city due to the
massive invasion of fans, Eyepatch Guy prepared for the inevitable
by stocking up his supplies of granola
, bottled water, and marble
statuettes, as he would be the only shop open at their arrival.
year, the requested shipment of 100 pounds of granola was delayed,
forcing Eyepatch Guy to hire "Detective Softly
" to convince the miner
at the nearby Granola Mines
to get back on track and reroute it to
Anthar. Since Eyepatch Guy was unaware of the closing of the Naive(tm)
bottling company, he sent "Softly" on a task to deliver
some bottled water from Naive(tm) to be served alongside the
granola. Eyepatch Guy tracked the adventurer to the closed plant at the
, where he purchased the last crate. Then he sent
"Softly" on one final task to stock up on marble statuettes from the
"renegade" miners of the Peltoid Valley (Eyepatch Guy had survived
worse than The Dead Walk and paid up after, so the miners were willing
to extend come credit to him). He rewarded "Softly" with two free
tickets to the show, but the unsatisfied adventurer instead stole a
T-shirt and bottle of BERZIO from the stand when he was not looking.
