You know one elf we need to talk about more? Kesler Dizznee.
He’s one of the few great parents (or even good parents) in the series. Despite being a bad match, and having triplets, he teaches his children to hold their heads high and not care about what the stuffy nobles think of them. He teaches Dex Exillium skills because who cares if they’re unorthodox? They’re useful as heck.
And that’s not all. Can we talk about Slurps and Burps? How Kesler intentionally made his shop ridiculous-looking just so he could see the nobles squirm? Before opening Slurps and Burps, he probably sat down and said to himself, “What kind of image do I want to portray? What will make this apothecary reflect me as a person? Well, I’m annoyed by the nobility. Let me annoy them back.”
Kesler deserves so much more appreciation.
