A minor character from my novel SHARD. Bys is a kobold - sort of a dwarf-meets-hobbit. He's four-foot-five tall and like most of his people, he's a miner by trade. The majority of kobolds are middle to lower class, miners and farmers. Bys is a bit of an exception - a kobold administrator, and a lord at the royal court. Of course he's the kind of lord who swears like a sailor and who'll challenge you to a fistfight if you give him a funny look... Did I say challenge? He'll BEAT you in a fistfight!
