Hero (adoptive grandson)
Appearance and Personality
Chalky is a portly older man with a kind face. He is bald, but has very bushy eyebrows and a bushy mustache. He wears a long-sleeved white shirt, typically with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows, and a long green tunic with vertical yellow stripes on it, black trousers, and brown shoes. Chalky covers his head with an orange knit cap, wears a short orange shawl over his shoulders, and a long orange sash tied around his waist. He is rarely seen without his fishing pole.
Although the Hero is not his blood relation, it is clear that Chalky cares deeply for the boy and dotes on him.
In the game's prologue, Chalky is out fishing at a stream when he hears the cries of a baby. He is shocked to find the infant Luminary in a basket safe after a recent storm. Chalky picks up the baby boy and reassures him that there's no reason to be frightened anymore. He takes the child back to the village of Cobblestone, where he is raised as the son of his daughter Amber.
At the time of the Hero's 16th birthday, Chalky has already passed away. When it comes time for the young man to start his journey after completing his coming-of-age ceremony at the top of Cobblestone Tor, Amber gives Chalky's former traveling clothes to the Hero.
