NPC of the Week: Jacques Lizot the Gambler

Jacques Lizot

Gambler                    (SR 6)

Location: Lyon (may have left after being threatened by Gaston Thibeault)

Background: Lizot is the younger, ner-do-well son of a noblesse de robe official. Lizot is also a professional gambler. His recent circumstances have been quite poor, a bad night at the table was followed by a most unfortunate encounter with a large gentleman (Gaston Thibeault) who took his brass 'watch,' rapier, and mazzagatto pistol.

After which he coldly stared at Lizot and his surviving bodyguard while saying:
"Don't let me see you again. And if you trouble any of us, and most especially this young lady, ever again, I will find you and, as God is my witness, I will kill you.

Despite being upset at the loss of his 'watch' Lizot concluded that Gaston was a man of his word and he vowed to himself that in future he will avoid Gaston like the plague.
