Bio:

Appearance:
Though his Durance seems to have shrunk Mack in height and presence, he remains a burly guy. He’s not the most attractive man, what with the sewn-shut mouth, balding head, and hunched-over posture, but he’s got a face you can trust. Mack has a small keg-barrel (somewhat smaller than a quarter-keg) strapped to his bag, which is a token from Arcadia that allows him to transform the liquid in the keg to a liquid of Mack’s choosing that Mack can spray at his foes like a fire hose. (see Everfull Keg special attacks above)

Background:
James Richards was a bar owner before he was changed. A widower with a grown up son, James worked constantly to avoid his empty home. When taken to Arcadia, James’s Keeper, Sam Adams, forced him to be a brewer. James forcibly objected and as punishment Adams had Mack’s mouth sewn shut with Arcadian thread. Since his escape from Arcadia, James has re-established himself as a bar owner known for his unique cocktails and strange home-brews. His bar has been around for 7 years in a remote section of Waldorf and his patrons, unable to get an answer, have dubbed him Mack.
