A cantankerous and obstinate performance artist on the prod for his missing meal ticket.
Pelzard is a traveling performer. He worked hard to become a performer—traveling was forced upon him by circumstance: his captive pelgrane, Hupplebaust, escaped, ate three or four townsfolk, then fled into the wilderness. Leaving town just ahead of an angry populace he took to his heals along Hupplebaust’s trail, hoping to recapture the creature (if for no other reason, than to chastise it for damaging his reputation).
Upon arriving in Ossier—where flying creatures are generally blasted out of the air by Phaeton’s magic crystal—the trail turned west along the River Scaum.
