Remnants of the Mana War
Balon ain’t too smart. He greets people, he takes money, and he serves food and drink. He takes orders, but only one at a time. He is a big guy, but no one is really afraid of him. But no one has really ever seen him angry either.
Sometimes people don’t pay Balon the right amount, and then a week later they find their names on a list of people Balon doesn’t serve. His wife must be a good bookkeeper.
