"You know, I was once like you. Right, this is when I'm supposed to describe how I was this horrible scum, utterly misunderstood, until I discovered the power of this thing I want to sell you, which will transform you into this god, all without the Test-of-the-Starstone hoohah. I'm not here to sell you anything. Life does get better. I just hope you find that out before you get sacrificed to a dark god like I almost was. But I'll sell you something if you've got coin you want to turn into self-fulfillment, I'm not too proud."

Finn's mode of dress somehow straddles the space between an ascetic monk's, and a street performer's. He often wears a colorful toga or robe over a cleverly designed harness containing his various elixirs and reagents. He uses a variety of different headgear for his long, unruly blue hair depending on his mood--perhaps a turban one day, held in a ponytail by a lobster's carapace the next. He usually keeps a serene look on his face, his orange eyes always smiling.
Finn maintains that sense of self control seen in monks, but with none of the seriousness. Never afraid to try something new, he laughs often and invites others to join in. He is, however, quite serious about his fitness, and will regularly be seen exercising and stretching if there is any chance he may become bored. All put together, he sees that he has been spared a fate worse than death, and wishes to celebrate that fact with everyone whenever possible. He is very sensitive to oppression, gloom, and harm, wishing to minimize suffering whenever possible. However, his experience with the Vanderborens has driven him to act with gusto, and not be afraid to fight against tyranny and destruction.
Finn had been much more of a free, if undisciplined, soul in recent past. Tending to get drunk an in all sorts of trouble, he had descended into the underworld, and would have been a sacrifice to a secretive cult of Zon-Kuthon, if not for a daring rescue by Verik and Larissa Vanderboren. He thanked them, and saw this as an opportunity to turn his life around. He took his knowledge of alchemy and combined it with a newfound verve on what he calls "The Enhanced Life". He had hoped to show the adventuresome couple what he had accomplished with turning himself around, when he heard that tragedy struck.
