The Bitter North
An orphan of about 10, he’s the stable boy at the Stars Fall Inn. Good with horses, he has been raised by John Star and lives at the inn where he tends the beasts of the village. A child in the inn, he hears all sorts of interesting things and no one pays him any attention, thinking him not quite bright. In truth, he’s merely a bit withdrawn after losing his family. He might possibly know quite a bit more than the adults would like. Especially about the happenings and history of the tiny human settlement that isn’t even on the map.
