BACKGROUND:
Peter was born in Bendwyn to the itinerant wizard Oblidar who stopped in the village on his travels one day and never left, becoming the town’s resident wizard for 20 years before dying and passing the shop on to his son.

Peter and Betty were childhood sweethearts who married  young and are now the proud parents of two children – Logan, the eldest, is rather shy and a bit of a mummy’s boy while Kitty is quite precocious and is already showing a flair for the family business. 


Every so often wizened strangers drift through the village claiming to be old friends of Oblidar, but Peter is always suspicious of these people as his father never talked of his travels and so doesn’t know exactly what these wanderers are after. He usually denies any connection to Oblidar and sends them on their way.


As the first literate person in Bendwyn (a passion for reading is spreading among the 'adventuring' class), Peter supplements his income by acting as the village’s official “reader”, reading any messages that come for the council or any personal correspondence a villager may receive for some reason.


While scrupulously honest with fellow villagers, he is not above trying to fleece any gullible – and obviously wealthy – so-called “adventurers” who come to Bendwyn.
