Keygan Ghelve (deceased)
Was owner of Ghelve's Locks. Gnome locksmith.
Keygan Ghelve, the gnomish owner of Ghelve’s Locks, was the most talented locksmith in Cauldron. It turned out that Ghelve’s store holds a secret entrance to the ancient ruins of Jzadirune, an abandoned gnome fortress underneath Cauldron, where the gnomes created many magic items. He fell on hard times when his rat familiar Starbrow was taken from him by the skulks inhabiting Jzadirune. He was forced to create copies of skeleton keys that would allow the skulks access to all of the residences in Cauldron who had been Keygan’s customers. Ghelve also had to allow the kidnappers to use his store as a staging front for their nightly escapades.
The party found Starbrow in Jzadirune, and returned him to his owner, who was very happy to see his familiar return.
When his involvement in the kidnappings was revealed to Jenya Urikas, she had the gnome arrested and thrown in jail. His appeals that he was only working under duress to protect his familiar were quashed in the face of Jenya’s unyielding prosecution. He languishes in the dungeons still, having been convicted of being an accomplice to the kidnapping of over 30 of Cauldron’s residents.
Unfortunately he blamed himself for what happened to the children and commited suicide.
