Jiro Malic is a human sage who lives on the coast of the bay near the Archipeligo. He lives on a cliff where he creates things from discarded stuff (including a Golem!!!).
Malic has a “rival” in the form of a Stone Giant that lives on the other side of the hill from him. The Stone Giant throws boulders at his house (which usually miss due to the steep angle) and Malic’s Golem throw boulders right back.
Meets many people planning to travel on The Dorado and is happy to chat about those he has met.
