No one ever said that Sunberthians were a particularly creative lot when it came to naming things. Clever on the other hand is a different story altogether.

On the outside, Cutters and Carvers is your run-of-the-mill lumber yard with a handful of workers at any given time during the day. Located out near the edge of the city the yard sources most of its lumber from the forest near the northeastern side of the city as they have a long-standing deal with the farmers of Agremmon Fields.

The brothers that run the business don't tolerate much in the way of competition, and have long since either bribed, extorted, or even outright killed anyone who's tried to angle in on their business. Because of this, they have managed to become the one and only supplier of cut timber in Sunberth.

While a significant portion of their business is devoted to keeping the people of Sunberth well stocked with firewood, they have the tools and skills to cut the wood into just about any shape you could want. One would just need to ask, and the Carver brothers would be happy to fulfill such an order.

A well-known side business of theirs would be their carvings and sculptures which they tend to charge exorbitant fees for.

Hidden ServicesEver since the demand for firewood decreased with Morowen's absence from the world, the Carver brothers struck up a side business running drugs through their lumberyards that they smuggle into sculptures and statues. They only do business with the Nighteyes however and they don't take on any clients that haven't been vetted first.

 
Kander Carver
ImageName: Kander "The Cutter" Carver
Age: 38
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Title: Co-Owner of Cutters & Carvers.
Skills: Weapon (Woodsman's Ax): 72, Logging: 70, Stealth: 68, Bodybuilding: 66, Wilderness Survival: 55, Subterfuge: 52, Driving: 51, Carpentry: 45, Brawling: 45, Endurance: 42, Carving: 35, Wrestling: 37.

Gnosis: None.

Info:
Kander Carver is known as the "Cutter", but this isn't for any dark, mysterious, or silent reasons. Of the brothers, he is the stronger. The one that tends to cut down trees and haul them home for carving which is his brother's specialty. The Cutter cuts down the trees, cuts the lumber, and so on. When comparing the brothers, one will find they are identical in appearance, except for small personal preferences such as hair length, how long they'll go before shaving their face, or clothing worn. Besides this, they can only be separated by personality, and even that doesn't change much.

Kander is known for being the gentle silent type, honest but never telling anybody what they shouldn't know. To most people, he is as trustworthy as anybody in Sunberth can be. A hardworking laborer with incredible natural strength from decades of cutting wood. He's a man with a seemingly simple non-chaotic life, but that's what happens when you actually live outside of Sunberth, you have that luxury of living (almost) in peace. He personally sets up lumbering camp sites and finds locations to gather lumber in the wildlands.


 
Keith Carver
ImageName: Keith "Dean" Carver
Age: 38
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Title: Co-Owner of Cutters & Carvers.
Skills: Carving: 80, Weapon (Carving Knife): 74, Carpentry: 64, Stealth: 60, Acrobatics: 59, Fletching/Bowing: 53, Intelligence: 51, Negotiation 50, Larceny: 48, Logging: 35, Driving: 28, Brawling: 26.

Gnosis: Night Stalking, 1.

Info:

Keith, either called Dean or Carver, is remarkably like his brother Kander. He may be more talkative than his brother, but he's not arrogant or obnoxious in his speech. Just as hard of a worker as Kander is, Keith is skilled more with his hands and their finesse rather than muscle and strength. Where Keith will still go an cut lumber for countless reasons, he will more often than not be found at the workshop carving or preparing wood for personal use or sale. Keith has been known to, on occasion, go into the City and assist Ol' Legs with repairs, when there's a short time frame and a lot of work to be done.

Dean himself is a straightforward man, never beating around the bush or verbally avoiding the point to conversations. He speaks when he needs something, wants something, or feels his words are important, or a question is to be answered, other than that he is just as silent as his brother, or the wood they work with. When potential customers or employees come to the Cutters and Carvers, Keith is always the one to deal with them, strike deals, make sales, and hire people for work. Keith is more often involved with the Night Eyes than his brother is, but there's no visible resentment between the brothers, either one would take an arrow to the chest for the other and Kander is always willing to help the gang.
