Fil is a character from my "Drowned Earth" campaign, a fantasy/swashbuckling/post-manaclysm romp. Fil is one of the best ship's cooks ever to set foot in Sankta Rozino. He lost his leg to a shark a while back, and now never misses an opportunity to practice carchariidae soup recipies. (He hates them; he's not afraid of them.) He never uses magic in his actual cooking, but will often use it around the edges: to stir pots, to time the roast, to measure the exact amount of spice, to purify poor ingredients. He does not use magic to make up for his missing leg, except when necessary. He believes he's earned his slow pace.
