Master Temperance has been dispensing advice from on top of a small hill near Iceferry for many years. He claims to have been trained by: a) mystical hooded figures from Nex who taught him the monastic arts through cooking metaphors b) wandering tengu on the backs of kirin who dipped their feathers in adamantium to harden them into invulnerable weapons c) an eyeless dragon coiled about a nameless isle in the Steaming Sea, who possessed secrets of sunken Azlant. It is hard to say if any of these stories are true, but what is certain is that Master Temperance is rather good at what he does, and what he does includes having a good slug of throatburn whiskey from time to time, which he claims will give him increased powers in the future. Who knows if this is true?

Master Temperance will divulge his real name, which is Fellfern Mushroompillow, but only to good friends. His deadpan expression almost never cracks. He will claim that his dark clothes, personality, and necromantic abilities are due to the fact that he is part drow. Or that he accidentally was imprisoned in the Bone Palace of the Eldest after drinking from the wrong faery cup. Or that he was rescued from The Bleaching by a group of young, fun loving proteans. His hair is a shock of pink and white that sticks straight up, his eyes are rose-colored, and his skin is pale, while he favors an all black get up that looks like an Ulfen hunter’s outfit was redesigned by a Chelaxian diva going to a Kuthite bondage party.
