Patches the Hyena aka Trusty Patches, is from the series Dark Souls. He is not fond of cleric type character and those who demonstrate more to that of greed. Prided by his own self getting him by in the places of great desolation, he thinks the best in himself in bettering and swindling those of faith and those of greed. Most the time once you meet him he lures you into either a trap or a ledge to a treacherous place for you to fight your way out of, all made to be alluring to the eye like a series of shiny objects placed around leading up to an item of possible special values for all you know. Some of the time it helps you get to a location with minimal damage to press onward vs the normal jumping down to a location. After a time or another of succeeding out of his traps he becomes a slightly more overpriced general merchant, but in more convenient of locations and sometimes offering great items.
His favorite saying is "All's well that ends well"
