"Gnomish Mage and Guide"
A small man, spiked goatee and purple pantaloons, a purple vest and a small belly on him, Alister is an arrogant and sly gnome.
First discovered being held hostage within the Feywild, Alister managed to get a reprieve by guiding the party through the trials that laid before them, and not always succeeding.
Teaching the party wizards, Aur, a few tricks at the end of the Feywild arc, Alister bid himself ado before taking his own path.
Reappearing a few weeks later in Gilddock Bay, accompanied by monks and looking for help reforming a guild, Alister still remains to be knowing far more than he ever lets on.
