-Juliesti Sprig is the jolly Zif sorcerer in a nearby cosmopolitan community that borders a marsh region. The community is cosmopolitan as it is made up of Wild Elves, Grippli, Humans, Zif, and Lizardfolk.

-His jolliness is in response to a personal sadness that has struck him, the loss of his parents. He has tried to put on a brave face and distract himself from this tragedy by trying to make new friends in the town while serving as a Sorcerer-vizier to the town council.

-He knows that a distant darkness has taken hold of the swamp. The community is one of several built to stand against this encroaching evil. His parents were slain because of this. He has a vested interest in working with adventurers to find and stop this blight from within the swamp region.
