Soulmates found one story at a time.

Brother of Baba Yaga. Black eyes with red center (like coals), long, wild black hair, bushy beard, bulky build.

He was in Ashana to see who was interested in the book and knife at the auction, and had vodka with Ember, Stryx, and Norrix

He and Baba Yaga bring Ember and Stryx back to Port Storm, but the mortar and pestle crash land.
