Solid Stu (Stuart Grey) is a thirty-year-old human man with dark brown hair and blue eyes, the bartender and owner of the Book and Bell tavern in Vienda. He is a "solid" character - dependable, trustworthy, and surprisingly strong. He is also very plain and unremarkable; Alyssa Pierre once remarked that he had a "nothing face". Stu is prone to Deep Thinking, usually with a bottle of gin.
As the Guardian of the Book and Bell, it's Solid Stu's task to guard the doorways that lead to numerous parts of the How. He is charged with weeding out the untrustworthy and protecting the bar's inhabitants.
