Dylan's Carrion Crown
Antek "Chinks" Chinchelvsky
A gnome carnival worker
“Chinks” has spent many years traveling with a Varisian carnival. He’s does a small magic show with his trained ferrets and also serves as the back-up fortune teller.
He is friendly, inquisitive, good natured and kind. He’s tough from years on the road and his hands are quick as lightning.
But he is an incurable optimist who seems unable to learn the hard lessons of life. He lives in the moment, has no head for facts or names, and is incapable of imagining (or even recalling) the negative consequences of his actions.
He has a gnome’s innate desire to understand how things work, but this mainly manifests in a desire to take things apart. He lacks the focus to build or create.
His affinity for animals is strong, even for a gnome, and he keeps a pair of trained ferrets named Ada and Belo.
He saved Professor Lorimer from a band of Sczarni thugs, and while Chinks can’t remember the exact circumstances, they must of have been serious as he’s been named in the Professor’s will.
As usual, everything is working out in the end (despite the dead Professor) and whatever happens at the funeral will probably be a good thing.
