a man with a wide bottom. His voice is almost like a woman's.
Initial visit :
"Ooh, you look so thin! Here, have a bite of bread."
He gives you a roll; it is still warm from the oven.
Subsequent visits :
"Why, hello there, <Gender>."
"My name is Shubin, <Gender>."
I'm a cook, <Gender>."
"He is my friend."
"Sandy says the mantra of eating is 'yum,' <Gender>. Hee, hee!"
If Iolo in party :
You friend Iolo rolls his eyes. "Such wisdom we can surely do without!"
"That's one of the eight mantras, isn't it?"
no-"Oh, do not tease old Shubin so, <Gender>!"
yes-"Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!"
If given rolls :
"I have no more rolls, <Gender>."
If not given rolls :
He ask anxiously "Do you like it, <Gender>?"
no-"Such a picky eater. No wonder you're so skinny, <Gender>."
yes-"Have a whole tray, then."
"Being a cook is like being an adventurer, <Gender>."
"Yes, <Gender>. I must gather up all my ingredients with care."
"So that I have the right ingredients, <Gender>."
"Adventurers are always searching for this or that, <Gender>. So are cooks."
"Do you know of Magincian Pastry?"
It is a marvellous dish, <Gender>. My friend Sandy gave me the recipe..."
"I'm only missing one ingredient..."
"Well, I'd like to make it, <Gender>, but I cannot get one of the ingredients..."
"I sure would appreciate it if you brought it back for me if you came across one in your travels, <Gender>..."
"If you could find time for old Shubin, that is..."
"Would it be too much trouble to bring me back a dragon's egg, <Gender>?"
yes-He sighs. "Well, <Gender>, it did no harm to ask, I suppose."
no-"I just know you will remember Shubin, <Gender>. Thank you."
"Have you one with you?"
