Description

 

A particularly eccentric Master Hatsmith.

Two of these such hats are The Jeering Fred and Popular Veal.

 

It was due to these strange naming practices that he spent a large portion of his life under investigation by the Item Law Makers Guild. Although he was never accused of crimes, several Guild members accused him of being “A damn sneaky little sod”.

 

Apprentices

None were able to acheive Master Hatsmithship without further mentoring. Some of the more notable apprentices include:
