a greedy Gnome looking to stake his claim in the new lands.
An alchemist by trade, and helps Bjorn craft better metals. Really good at scientifically deducing what goes with what, to create better, tougher metals.
Something of a prospector, came out here originally to the frontier to try and lay claim to some promising areas for prospecting ore, and realized that teaming up with the dwarf would help pay the bills while he looks (or preferably hires someone to look) for promising dig sites.
