Remnants of the Mana War
Alkor is somewhere in his 40’s, is completely bald, and is built like a blacksmith, or a thug. No one ever really thought of him much as a conversationalist, and his bargaining abilities rely mostly on his huge biceps and his pissed off glare he gives you when you try to make a deal.
His past is a bit sketchy, he is clearly a talented blacksmith, though some say he lets his apprentice’s handle far too much of the work nowadays. But no one really knows where he trained, or much of anything about his past. And no one really ever wanted to ask.
Alkor is willing to purchase pieces of metal from anyone, no questions asked, at a fraction of the cost (undecided…). But at least better than you could sell the item usually…
