"It ain't only the grog what brings people to the Druthers, but the camaraderie."
The proprietor of Buscarron's Druthers, this Midlander man once served as a sentry, keeping watch over the paths of his forest home. When a new watchspire was constructed, he was released of this duty, and so came to open his tavern.
Now forty-eight, Buscarron once saved a young Laurentius from a wild beast. Though he became a regular customer, Laurentius himself seems to have forgotten this incident, and Buscarron has not had the heart to remind him.
