Liddle Louie Ludwig Leighton Lee Lawrence Lipsitch
In his younger years, Liddle adventured with a trading caravan far and wide. Made a handsome profit, too, to hear him tell it. He claims to travel the Planes now, and apparently business is good enough still. In typical gnomish fashion, his costume is his own portrayal of “an unassuming businessperson”… which includes a ridiculously outsized hat. His pet bulldog, “Bubbles”, is almost certainly enchanted by some sort of souped-up Enlargement spell and helps him to keep an eye on the merchandise, rumbling intimidatingly if she suspected a shoplifter. The similarly Enlarged cricket, “Jingle”, is preternaturally intelligent, though he can’t speak, and seems to help out by doing the bookkeeping for the notoriously flighty and lackadaisical Liddle. He does this by dipping his hind feet into a shallow inkwell and then “typing” out the script in the ledger.
Liddle himself seems to have an encyclopedic knowledge of every trinket and tchotchke in his inventory and is able to recall with a moment’s thought whether there is such an item within… but considering the size of his wagon, it’s obvious he uses magic of some sort for the storage. As if his disappearances into “the back” and prompt producement of said requested item weren’t enough to prove it. Good luck getting a look at what’s “back there”, though.
