As the older son of Heinrich and Laureline Hinckwell, Lorcan Hinckwell is set to inherit the trading imperium. He has been described as overly cautious and sceptical, which for a merchant are not such bad traits. He is often seen doing his father's dirty work for him, but that is Heinrich's method to train him for what's to come after Lorcan inherits the Hinckwell fortune. His greatest rival is Umbra Shadeaux, for they often find themselves in the opposing sides of the same situations. Lorcan inherited the Waltzing Dragon Inn from his great uncle Krook, but allows the former bellhop Benedict Greely to oversee day to day operations of the inn.
