Wisdom of the Sages
Goldfinch is an elf who has seen a lot, even at his young age of 98. Though raised among his kind, he left his settlement for life in the open wilds some time ago. Even as a child he was frustrated by the retreating nature of his fellow elves, and is driven to correct situations he feels are unfair. Goldfinch is particularly repulsed by the institution of slavery. (His enemy, Martín, is a former traveling companion who sold some goblin bandits he and Goldfinch had vanquished to slavers, despite the elf’s attempts to thwart him.)
Goldfinch feels an urge to share what wisdom he has with those he feels may need it. As a result, he is talkative, and tends to bequeath his insights about anything that catches his attention to his companions, whether asked for it or not.
Goldfinch has the rough, deeply tanned skin and bleached hair of someone who spends too much time in the sun, and wears a headdress or hat fashioned from the upper part of a bison’s skull, complete with horns. Taken as a whole, his appearance, his mannerisms, and his choice of employment give the impression that the elf might not be completely “right in the head”.
