Lanterns in the Mist
An eccentric man in his forties, with thick glasses that have a number of attached lenses that can be shuffled further down, and a perpetual look of shock on his face with frizzy hair that stands out at all angle.
He is an inventor that the professor met and even acted as patron for some of his designs. He came with an overly complicated invention that takes a rather simple affair (a torch) and turns it into a great ordeal. He claims to be from Illmarsh.
