Mel’vin Joens is a clever and opportunistic trader originally hailing from Nex.

After the defeat of the reawakened Runelord Karzoug at the hands of the heroes of Sandpoint and the subsequent founding of the nation of Storval, Mel’vin made his way to Varisia to exploit new opportunities and make his fortune.

Mel’vin operates a caravan that travels between Magnimar, Sandpoint, Rannick, Nybor, and the many other towns and villages that dot Southwestern Varisia. He even makes regular trips as far as Korvosa, Janderhoff, and Xin-Shalast to stock more exotic wares that are hard to come by but often in high demand.

Mel’vin is a devout worshipper of Abadar, and although known for being a shrewd and calculating businessman, Mel’vin also has a sterling reputation as being a man of his word – at least to the letter if not exactly in spirit.
