About Gaston Blackacre

Gaston Blackacre was raised in a family of investigators, dedicated to carrying out the mission of Ragathiel and to their craft. Unfortunately for him, Blackacre was also dedicated to a faction whose head fell out of favor with the mob shortly before his head fell off of his neck. Left with no allies and far too many foes in the paranoid city of Isarn, Blackacre has been on the run ever since, putting his services at the disposal of any who needed him. He now finds himself in Ustalav, low on funds and looking for work once again...

General Aesthetic: gaslight meets film noir - restless, suspicious, inquisitive. Smoking cigarettes in darkened doorways while tailing a necromancer kind of thing. A touch each of Poirot, Friday, Glokta, and Spade.

Personality: obsessive, paranoid, propensity for bouts of righteous indignance and fury. also possessed of a dangerous curiosity.
