Okay Rob, here is a quickie that I derived from Calvin & Hobbes today:

Filthy Rich
Archtype: Rat Shaman Talismonger
Richard "Filthy Rich" Wallen is a short (5' 2") human male with
shoulder length greasy black hair. His face is often covered in a dirty
beard that contains food particles from his last 3 or 4 meals. The only
time he is shaven is when a lab experiment in his enchanting shop goes
bad. He wears traditional indian leather that smell as if they have not
be washed since the Great Ghost Dance, which he claims to be a survivor
of. He has a high squeaky voice that gets so high when he is making a
deal in his favor that it grates your nerves like hand razors across a
chalk board.
Filthy Rich started his career a a shadowrunner but quickly retired
due to his innate cowardice. As a talismonger, he makes the quality
products but sells them slightly hire than the average talismonger. He
does, however, buy magic items (foci, etc) with no questions asked. Rich
has opened a talismonger store in Redmond and has made "arrangements" with
a local gang to provide him added night-time security. In addition, his
former runner buddies come to him for help and as such he can call on them
should things get too thick. Whether "Filthy Rich" is an initiate or not
is a mystery though he does appear as a rat shaman when assensed.
