Gareth - a renowned half-elven artist who works strictly in the medium of plant life, he is especially well-known for his remarkable topiary work. He owns a 7 acre garden which acts as both studio and public park, at the center is his modestly-sized, yet extravagantly designed and decorated tower home. It is surrounded by walls, but generally open to the public (except on those rare days when he works on a new exhibit). He also hires out to wealthy clients, creating unique garden settings for (what some consider to be) exorbitant prices. Once each year, to celebrate the first day of spring, Gareth puts on a show in his garden studio, usually consisting of animated topiary characters telling some fanciful story. There are rumors that he has tamed several Living Topiary, and employs them as guards for his garden and home.
