Seen It All (Ex) Xing Jin Wei traveled far and wide and learned many things. He treats Appraise and all Knowledge skills as his class skills.

Xing Jin Wei is a traveling potion-maker and trader of minor magic items, seeking quality components, business opportunities, new recipes, and magical wares to buy and sell. He is very courteous but distant, aloof even, and cares little for others, except his weasel familiar.

Mastering alchemy and collecting tidbits of lore of all kinds are his love, his trade in potions is a way of channeling his studies into a productive business and finance further research.

Xing Jin Wei travels take him to many places, cities, towns, villages, and outposts, where he can offer his wares or hire services of mercenaries and sell-swords. He might look for a party to deliver him rare components, or guard him while traversing particularly dangerous regions. He can be met on the road, or while staying in an inn, such as in Wayside Inn side track encounter for Prepare For War series by Amora Game.
