Cedar was a Pagan villager residing in Beck o' the Wills. He and Fern eked out a living by tending local plants in a small garden outside their house. A trader named Jabril purchased his ferny plants and sold them to fern-fevered nobles for a hefty price. He was paid a paltry sum of six halfpenny coins with one extra as bonus.
Jabril later double crossed him by alerting Watch Officer Morgan to his route home through Carter's Gate (Pagan herbals are banned from The City during The Metal Age). This plot failed, however, as Cedar somehow evaded capture. He was killed in his own house instead during the Mechanist invasion (Trail of Blood).
