Ezekiel Drake is an adventurer and explorer as well as a long-standing member of Heroica. He regularly brings Heroica news of his latest discoveries around Olegaia. He is well versed in myths, sagas and histories of many nations - at least that's what he claims to be, anyway. There are some more illustrious and dubious stories concerning Drake, as well, accusing him of grave robbery and theft of cultural artifacts.
He and Madame Adeline Rouge Doux accompanied Byblos the Librarian on his very first quest for Heroica - which was almost his last, as well, after the whole party was thrown into jail because of Drake. Byblos has still to forgive him that.
