The mysterious figure, known only as the Gent, was an honorable and brave man aiding adventurers during the Great Monster Uprising. He was an all-rounder when it came to carrying the loot and solving puzzles, traps and mazes (of the Antharian and Miznian variety, as well as those frequently constructed by the frobgoblins and kobolds). The Gent could hold his own in combat, even assisting wounded adventurers. Some suspect that his age may have counted against him in a fight, but his balanced approach to adventuring more than made up for a spot of rheumatism, especially with his superb sense of discovering clues.
