Korvosa, City of Fangs
A dour human wizard in his 60s, Vortimax enjoyed a fruitful adventuring life before retiring and opening his alchemy/potion shop, Potent Potables. He is also partners with the Beholder Brewing Company, and sells their wares in his shop. An exceptional arcanist and alchemist, Weer has developed the art of using alcoholic beverages in his potions.
Unlike most typical elderly arcanists, Vortimax doesn’t seem particularly interested in long hours of research or the endless studying of ancient tomes. However, rumor has it that bringing him some new alchemical creation or an unidentified potion can pique his interest and temporarily brighten his surly demeanor.
Vortimax was friends with Thomys Greenfoot, a skilled half-elven alchemist who lived in the forests north of Korvosa.
