Introducing... Mr Van Guelder

A mysterious Dutch gentleman

  • Born: Amsterdam, date unknown.  Appears around 25 years of age.
  • Family: father (deceased) a member of the Gentlemen Seventeen (directors of the Dutch East India Company, others unknown.
  • Occupation: gentleman merchant.
  • Skills: manipulating others.
  • Interests: experimentation involving a mysterious lodestone; a growing obsession with Margaret Rosewood.
  • Van Guelder appears courteous and charming - and is extremely handsome - but there is also a hint of coldness about him.  His lack of any bodily scent and seeming ability to be in two places at once suggest that he is not quite what he seems.
