The Hollow City
Thin and knobby, Talfen is an old man. He keeps a scraggily beard and a bald head, tanned from years living on the beach. He is suspicious of those he doesn’t know, but he trusts those he does without doubt.
In his youth Talfen sailed the shores of The Hollow City with a crew of men. They aided the dock people in securing food, goods, and trade. One day in a rageful storm Talfen’s ship was attacked at sea. Fleeing from the monster Talfen lost several men and accidently ran the beloved ‘Floating Cask’ aground. Deserted by his remaining men, Talfen exiled himself to shamefully live in his boat, catching fish only for himself from then on.
