H. J. Kent is Lynchburg’s assayer, as well as the proprietor of the local general store, named H. J. Kent’s. He’s a notorious skinflint and miser with nary a good word to say about anyone. The only people who like him haven’t met him yet. He continues in business due to a lack of competition and a certain fear factor. Persistent rumors have it that H. J. Kent consorts with the Devil. These rumors arise from a pair of incidents in which bandits held up his establishment. Said bandits were found outside Lynchburg the next day, their throats torn out. It’s said that H. J. somehow recovered in full the money each group of banditos had stolen. After word of this incident got around, nobody, no matter how bad, was willing to cross him. Legend has it that even Rabid Rance Hitchcock is afraid to rob H. J. Kent.
Kent pays the going rate for gold, silver, and ghost rock. He knows, even with the sinister rumors that attend him, that he’d have a competitor right quick if he didn’t abide by the standard prices. It’s on the other prices in his general store where his talent for profiteering truly blossoms.
