|NPC Role||Hamel Capital's Blacksmith|
I make the best weapons in town!
Horatio's constant smithing is the reason why he's always soaked in sweat. He aspires to become the best blacksmith in all of Elrios and devotes himself to creating the best equipment. He has a quiet but cool vibe about him, and his seemingly ageless muscular body is admired by all the citizens. In Hamel, he is known as the "Flaming Horatio".
Horatio was very close to the royal family of Hamel and a close friend with the former Lord of Hamel, Lord Rod Gess.
