Faces of the Tarnished Souk: Khufusiris, the Crooked Sleuth of Unfathered Sin
"Be careful who you trust here, friends. Not everyone is as trustworthy as me."
In a realm where reality bends and half-truths walk in darkened alleys, trust is hard to come by. From those uncertain clouds comes lovable Khufusiris, with his dopey grin and easy jokes, providing advice and insight for any young traveler looking for a friendly face - or hoping to retrieve what has been stolen. But this mongrel creature is more than he appears, and far less friendly than he seems, and when backs are turned he knows best how to twist the cold knife of betrayal.
