A formerly stuffy, frazzled middle aged half-elf shuffles quietly around the library in comfortable looking robes.
"Hello, welcome to the Masonian Library of the Order of Haven, how can I help you?" He says as you come in. "Ahem... My name is Professor Everen Kovariæ, historian and curator of the library. Please make yourself comfortable. If you need help finding information about the Wilds or the creatures, entities, locations or factions within it, don't hesitate to ask."
