Historian and scholar who hired Myst and Blaze.
At the Nentir Inn, in Fallcrest, before everyone met, Myst and Blaze were sitting alone, making plans to join one another for mutual benefit in their individual causes. They were approached by Parle Cranewing, a scholar of architecture and historian who told them about an old ruin near Winterhaven, an ancient keep that Winterhaven grew in the shadow of. Like other similar structures across the land, the keep fell into disrepair when the empire of Nerath crumbled a hundred years earlier. Cranewing was interested in having the ruins explored and mapped out, promising to pay 250gp for a complete rendering and as a bonus if the ruins contained any valuables, they were welcome to keep anything they might find.
