Rengel [Rehn-gl] was an old sail-maker and retired marine living at the bottom of Cormorant Road in Malaz City. He once served on the Stormdriver. His personality swerved between "mawkishly nostalgic or blackly cynical, depending on whether you found him drunk or sober." The Widow Teal lived in the second floor apartment above him.
Temper encountered Rengel busily securing the shutters of his home on the night of the Shadow Moon in 1154 BS. The retired marine warned Temper to stay off the streets claiming fiends and worse would walk the city that night.
