Savage Worlds: Calico Dan of Lankhmar

The Beggar's Guild is well known for having some of the best information in the City of Sevenscore Thousand Smokes, and one of their best sources of information is Calico Dan. He can usually be found at one of three locations: Panoply Street, Blind Alley, or Milk Alley. Where you find Dan, you will find cats, and lots of them.

Calico Dan was born with the ability to talk with and understand cats. At a young age, he became so reliant on them that he found he preferred them to the filthy people who make Lankhmar their home. Fortunately, he crossed paths with Smiling Robey, the current Master of the Beggar's  Guild, who was smart enough to see Dan's potential. So now Calico has his cats keep tabs numerous subjects and report back to him.

Very few are aware of Calico Dan's gifts and Smiling Robey intends to keep it that way, which is just the way Dan likes it.
