Balthazar had been at the monastery far longer than anyone had known. He was a full adult as most of the students were adolescents and even now, years later, he still looked the same as then, and still instructed many of the classes. Even worse he always seemed to know everything before it happened. A fun pass time for the younger generation was to always try and trick him or surprise him with something - no one had ever succeeded.
He always dressed in blues and had a long sword at his side. His clothing was loose and meant for easy movement.
