Almeida is an older man of Medeiran descent with a long, white goatee and squinting eyes. He is wearing a silver Harpers pin on his breast and is wearing rather shabby scholar's clothes. He helped the party escape an ambush on their caravan. In his possession when he was first encountered was a mysterious book that the attackers were looking for.
Since then he has appeared to Oshairana feeding her information on what is going on behind the scenes of the Harpers Guild.
