Yaren Blackstaff

A merchant of Pavis and devotee of Issaries the Guide, Yaren’s renowned for daring explorations of the Wastes and the Rubble, and charting a new route to Kralorela. His shop stores many artifacts from his wide travels, and he often swaps legends at the Knowledge temple. His magnificent ironshod ebony staff always points the way, the leather coat gifted by Kost defends him from foes and the weather, and Ostan protects him. Handsome and witty, Yaren longs to marry, but Reana has so far refused him, despite all the poetry. Yaren dresses well, and loves to impress others.
