Hmmm..I think the Grey scribe is an interesting character. The juxtaposition of the gruesome details of his appearance with the mention of a practicality is a good touch. One can imagine the maggots eating at him to be apt metaphors for the emotions eating away at his soul. The reminder of the Scribe's grovelling'( can I assume that?), menial nature in the last paragraph sums up the character well. Overall seems an excellent candidate for a creature that would alternate between self-deceptive loyalty and betrayal. Not unduly offensive in my opinion... Go to Comment
He's a non-descript man, with his pushcart. On it he sells nothing more exotic than jars of sun-dried tomatoes in oil and pickled vegetables. But he's always out there, in the courtyard of the great Guild of Wizards, in most weathers, and he'll have a kind word for you, and a jar.
