Other Facts

  • His thirst for reading, while not unusual in his own family, has helped him stand out everywhere else. He got the job working for Lichen because he was the only one who applied who could write as fast as she could list facts.
  • He's shy, but a deep thinker with big ideas. One can't help but think he would have been better of if he'd been born in Laketown or Dol Amroth.
  • As a boy, he was one of Brock Thornley's favorite targets, and Amelia was his only defender. He's still afraid of the older boy, even though Brock is fairly benign now.
  • Nelson is fond of word and puzzle games. He usually has some kind of brain teasing puzzle in his cavernous pockets, and is happy to bring one out for curious people to try.
  • When working alone, Nelson is easily distracted, and spends far too much time compulsively organizing.
  • Nelson often mutters to himself when he reads, and has been caught on more than one occasion quietly making the sounds of words in his books.
