About the Piscine Researcher

He's a lone-wolf angler seeking new discoveries. Fishing is his reason for living. He conquered every variety of fish in the Old World and got hooked by the Commission. He heads piscine research for the endemic life field guide. Basically, he catches, records, and then releases.

Besides his research into fish species, he is also looking for companions to fish with. He is the best person to ask about the art of fishing and fish. He can also sometimes be seen catching real whoppers.

He dresses in the styles of a fisherman with his wide-brimmed hat, leather vest, and boots appropriate for water.
