Trace of Breath
A wealthy man of mystery who supports Polycarp's quest.
Charles Sampson found Polycarp when the Deva first arrived in Kinsmet, somewhere in Dordare. Sympathizing with Polycarp’s mission, Sampson has been funding the search for the murderers of the Deva’s souls. For two years, he helped and cared for Polycarp, who lived with him in Brielle and began to call him, “father.” He has asked nothing in return until recently, when he begged Polycarp to find his son, Charlie, and bring him home. Polycarp swore to it, but has not yet been able to fulfill his oath.
