Storm of Ascendance
Monster Hunter. Author.
Leather longcoat, clearly seen some wear and tear. Wears a broad-brimmed hat with a narrow bill. Carries a fancy-looking repeating crossbow with all sorts of weird odds and ends poking off it, as well as on the bandoleers hung across his chest. He wears a thick eyepatch with what look like tiny switches built into the side of it.
Varris is a relatively well-known Castian scholar and researcher, surprisingly. He has written many texts about the world and the creatures that inhabit it.
He also happens to be quite a hand with a crossbow, apparently.
