Cadwych is the elderly owner of Cadwych's Curios
in Hengistbury Village
, and is known in town as an exacting and serious man. Propriety, honesty, and discretion are his watchwords.
He is known for giving terse, unsolicited (and usually repetitive) advice:
- "Spend a penny to earn a crown."
- "A minute's preparation saves an hour's work."
- "An unsure hand is a losing hand."
- "Off by an inch is off by a mile."
Cadwych moved to Hengistbury as a young man with Marrus the Sage
. It is widely rumored that they were adventurers who traveled together. Shortly after settling in Hengistbury, however, they had a bitter falling out. The two have neither seen nor spoken to each other in several decades. Nevertheless, Cadwych will not buy any magic item that does not have a certificate of authenticity from his erstwhile companion.
