Ryx Bronzebeard

The dwarf Ryx Bronzebeard captains a ship, the Ruvalk, on Clearwater Lake and the surrounding rivers. The party met him in Codex VI-Chapter 3 when he arrived at the head of the Thifrin River towing a boat that had been severely damaged in a pirate attack. He paid for the care of the injured sailors himself, even paying other ships to jump the line so he could dock earlier and offload the wounded. He is very observant and wise, able to immediately ascertain that Sebastien and Lady Maramos are a vampire-worshipper and a vampire, respectively, and is also apparently great at Listen checks, having heard a whispered conversation from far away.
