Character type: Trader
Appearance: Irawn always looks as if he's sampled a bit too much of his own wares - perhaps because he has. He's a plump little man and not a particularly handsome one. His hair is balding badly, and the resulting bare patch of skin always seems to be red and peeling. Not even his clothes are all that neat - but his smile does indicate that if he IS friendly if disreputable.
Personality: What Irawn lacks in good looks, he makes up for in friendliness and enthusiasm. The man always has a smile on his face, and is generally willing to pause to have a drink with a customer. While the price of a mug of drink is fixed, if you're buying a skin or two he'll happily barter with you with much handwringing and "Sir, at that price I will starve!"
History: Some Traders make their living going from place to place, buying fine wines and selling them on,. dealing in such delicacies as Benden Whites. Irawn doesn't.
