Tobias the doorman, Salamonis Great Library

looks like a deaf ancient medieval monk, or the Hermit tarot card, has a staff&lantern


Tobias is the doorman of Salamonis Great Library although his official duties extend far beyond that to the practical running of the place.

The expression ‘ancient, wizened face’ has no better epitome than the hunchback who opens the door. He shouts because he is deaf and impatient.

He holds onto a tall staff which has a candle lantern dangling from the top on a great metal hoop. He wears a saggy brown monks robe; his gray hair is cut in a basin style.

He tells everybody not to ring the doorbell because it is broke and yet somehow he still knows when to answer the door.
