Master Bragun and His Clockwork Circus
Bragun is a human, originally from the city, who traveled in his youth and returned with a quartet of clockwork figures that could perform various tricks – dancing, acrobatics, pantomime / mummery. He set up a small night club near the great market (Chains Crossing being a major center of trade and visitors), and had shows at 11am, 3pm, and 7pm. There is a small charge for admission, but he’s willing to take it in trade if you are handy with gadgetry and can make some repairs for him.
There are four clockwork figures, all presenting as follows (though clearly mechanical):
Dahlia, a human female
Renwick, a human male
Prim, a human of unspecified gender
Dunwillow, a dog
Bragun is a big, boisterous showman, possessed of a bushy auburn beard, full of bonhomie, but highly protective of his figures – obviously because they are his bread and butter, though he has declined appreciable offers to buy them in the past.
Things have not been going well lately. Trade through the city is down, such that only the 7pm show is still going on. Worse, Renwick has not been functioning properly and Bragun has been unable to get him working again.
[I have no plans in mind for this guy or his figures, and he could easily be placed elsewhere if we never get to him, but if he is of inspiration to anyone, I am find with that.]
