Faro Balkat was a resident and regular at the Hanged Man Inn in Malaz City. He was described as frail, rheumy-eyed, "dried old stick who swallowed Paralt water like it wasn’t the poison it was, and who rarely knew whether it was day or night". He was usually accompanied by Trenech.
He was capable of speaking an unidentified language similar to Old Talian.
