The Wandering Inn

First Appearance

Interlude - Pebblesnatch and Garry (Officially)

Calescent is a Hobgoblin [Spice Chef]. A member of the Flooded Waters Tribe, he currently works at The Wandering Inn

Appearance[edit | edit source]

He has a stout figure, which is a result of his belief that a Chef should taste their own creation before it leaves the kitchen.[1]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Calescent enjoys making all of his dishes spicy, regardless of his diners' personal preference. He also insists that Goblins should eat at least twice a day, knowing from experience what was like to starve, even making spice-less food, which for him is a crime against cuisine, if it means that they properly eat.[1] He is kind-hearted and earnest in his desire to know non-Goblins, as evident by him trying to become friends with the Healer of Tenbault.[2] Calescent has a sharp memory, being able to memorize a complicated meal request from Falene after hearing it once.[3] He has an acute sense when it comes to cooking, and can discern whether or not some food has gone bad, such as when he had a funny feeling about some Eater Goat meat (which was contaminated with plague by Tolveilouka).[4]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • He named himself Calescent, which was a word as much as a name, after he had learned it from the only cook-book he’d ever possessed.[1]
  • He is incidentally one of the most feared fighters outside of the Redfangs, because when he goes into battle he carries a small sack of his hottest spice blends and throws it in the enemies eyes as he hacked them apart with a cleaver.[1]
  • Snapjaw is the only person that can eat most of his spicy cooking without leaking from most orifices.[6]
  • Calescent is so far the only other character that can cook the [Wondrous Fare] food that Erin makes, by using the [Copy Recipe] Skill.[8]
  • He secretly gives treats to Mrsha and Nanette.[9]
