Aki the Guide
Street-kid turned Guide in Great Forks
A skinny teen with dusty hair in baggy clothes who sometimes guides travelers
through the city
Very knowledgeable and opinionated, known by locals to steer traffic to places that could use more business, and the shopkeepers see that Aki doesn’t go hungry in return when he lets them, though he never eats twice in the same place in the same year (making exception for street vendors). He is prefers guide work but is willing to play messenger, if only within the city and to some nearby farms.
