With Strange Eons, Even Fog May Die
Employer of Elle
A very rich merchant, Thomas Rooke hired Atheon Archer after being persuaded by Rathal, likely involving implications of the gratitude of Sylvir. Rooke had a thinly-veiled dislike of Archer, but dealt with it by giving Archer chores that kept him out of Rooke’s hair, so Archer didn’t really mind. After Elerin started working and proved to be much more civil and polite than Archer, Archer was found to be redundant and was let go.
Thomas has a wife Elizabeth and a son Walter.
