Description and History
Helk Lives in Eveningstar. He is quite the academian and scholar,
having developed several potions himself. The Clacky-Squishy
is among these. It's a magically treated variety of mollusc that
can be broken open and smeared upon wounds or diseased skin to heal
Helk is the foremost expert on knives in Cormyr. He does not dabble
in thier construction himself, but instead studies the styles and
manners of creation of knives from all over Abeir-Toril. He has
been consulted by many notables regarding his information.
Also, while adventuring earlier in life he realized the need for
safety in casting. He thus developed a version of magic missile
that can be fired around corners using a mirror. Instead of striking
the mirror, it seeks the source of that image.
Helk is a crude, brutally honest, and quite abrasive individual.
His hair remains unkempt and un-cut; his home is cluttered and disorganized.
He currently spends his time as a hedge-wizard in Eveningstar,
helping the farmers with gophers and insects. He also repairs knives
on the side. He leaves Eveningstar only to travel to Arabel...usually
to do some research or to buy a new knife from abroad.
