Gen is a cunning thief with a heart of gold and a sharp tongue. He takes pleasure in annoying the rest of the party throughout the novel, but when the going gets tough is quick to display his skill. The world-building and invented mythology is interesting and their adventures on the road keep the pace moving quickly.
