Mortude, from Ultima VI
A somewhat bitter older man, Mortude had little interest in talking to the Avatar, although he couldn't help but boast about the quality of his rope. Mortude fancied himself an excellent flippits player, often playing with Thindle. Mortude grudgingly taught the Avatar how to play when prompted. Mortrude fancied young Merideth by giving her a length of rope so she could swing from a tree, and Grison and Dorin spoke positively of him.
