Boos Myller was a seventeenth century citizen of West Shanbar and one
of the last direct descendants of the infamous Flathead
family. This infamous socialite, philosopher, and toastmaster, was
the miller of the valley and owned the village's pawn shop. Unknown for
many years, the mill had been built upon a secret entrance to the Great
Underground Empire, which could only be reached through a trapdoor
which opened while the mill whell was revolving.
the days when the Valley of the Sparrows was full of fat cattle and
grain for as far as the eye could see, Boos was popular in
and people needed him. He used to sell a majority of his grain to
Pugney and make rye whiskey. But when the curse of Morphius descended and the valley became barren, Boos shamefully withdrew. As

the unknown Sweepstakes Winner gained entrance to the Great Underground
Empire via the same passage. Although in those days, the cellar's
doorway had been locked. This human had to obtain its keys, which had
somehow come into the possession of Boos Myller. When the miller was
heavily intoxicated, the Sweepstakes Winner asked him for his keys.
Thinking that this human was merely going to take his truck to purchase
more alcohol, Boos relinquished the keys. Not only did the taking away
of the keys allow entry into the Great Underground Empire, but it kept
another inebriated driver off the roads.
