Richard "Marmot" Jenkins

"Marmot" is an infiltration-specialist mage who follows the hermetic school of magical thinking. Short and slightly built, Marmot takes his nickname from his rodent-like appearance and tendency to "squirrel away" caches of weapons and money in various slum hidey-holes. Marmot rarely homes in one area, but he carries a cheap commlink via which he can be reached.

Marmot is a highly-skilled character who should only be introduced in elite campaigns. With the given stats, he is in his late thirties.

Marmot favors summoning elementals to help him out; he almost always has a watcher spirit handy, and when actively "at work" he tends to keep some elementals around. He treats the elementals sort of like intelligent pets; he is generally nice to them, but he commands rather than asks favors.
