Garen is the owner and proprietor of The Rising Sun, an outfitter and clothing store in the city of Hawkstone that tailor-makes a variety of high-quality clothes and accessories. They often import rare and expensive clothes and fabrics and one can sometimes find magical items for sale as well. Garen is a highly skilled tailor, yet still maintains his humility.
Garen is an active member of The Crafters, though he does not advertise his affiliation. Decidedly not the adventuring sort, Garen supports the fellowship by providing a public contact, as well as monetary donations. He has befriended the party and is also a friend to Alek Erevis.
