Appearance and Personality Edit

Jars of souls

Fanart by Este & Nel; the Baker is on the far left

He is not described, only mentioned.

Ezmia fell in love with him, only to find out his affections for her had been a ruse, a joke he played on her with the other village youths. When she demanded his apology, he refused. To punish him, she enchanted a gingerbread man. The uproar this caused made the baker's family lose their bakery.
