Ptolus, City By The Spire
Man of the Street
Ednol Friss: This dockworker carries a wooden keg full of rum over one shoulder, walking toward a nearby cargo ship almost ready to set sail. Ednol, a male human, is about average height but very broad.

Kellinar is fairly new to the Docks and his job there, but already those he interacts
