The screenshots showcase a batch of new characters that populate the world of the game and that Adol will meet in his adventures.
Maxim is a mysterious man accompanied by an owl named Arthur. He does business in Balduq’s black market. He trades on both items and confidential information, which he seems to receive from prisoners in the city’s jail.
Salady is a beautiful traveling doctor who lives in Balduq. The citizen often rely on her and she heals those who can’t afford treatment for free. She seems to be looking for something, and often visits the inn where Adol is hiding.

Tate is a clever and kind boy who works as a blacksmith apprentice. His father died a few years ago, and he now lives with his younger sister.
