Professor Kaineth was once a professor at Veneficus University in New Ashos and a close friend of Gandohar in his younger days. He is a regular at the ‘Lion’ and sends the player to Eric in the ‘Swallows’ to have a special surgery done that will allow them to ‘see’ the events of twenty years ago and find the answers they seek.
Kaineth had the surgery done by the Scavengers that allowed him to ‘see’ but because of the events that took place twenty years ago with Gandohar at the old university he has since lost this ability.
Kaineth’s former assistant Haia is tricked into delivering a warning to him from Tai Lin that she believed was a missing scroll. The warning claimed Kaineth was going to die when the sand in a large hour glass within his house ran out but it turns out to have just been a prank by Tai Lin.
