A wandering merchant
Christopher Zallen is a somewhat mysterious figure in Bannor. He wanders the land trading and selling goods to the people he comes across. Even though gold has become worthless in the survivalist economy, he readily accepts it in exchange for his wares. His enterprising travels have brought supplies to many havens, and saved many lives. Nobody knows much about him other than that — but any man who can traverse Bannor alone and survive is definitely a formidable person.
