Mir - A long way...
Free Scholar of the Snake Tribes
Human male in his late years. Unkempt beard and tattered clothes. Always traveling, and always seems to have a brand new pair of boots. Wears a strangely colorful bandana, and an old pair of glasses.
Arlin moves from place to place, never staying too long. Identifies himself as one of the “Free Scholars”, though never elaborates on what that means. About once a year he comes by, delivering a book or two, as well as stories of neighboring towns. Always makes the children promise to “keep those pages for the sages, keep ’em out of sight ’til the night.”
