Appearance Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars

This unnamed character is one of the workmen at the Institut Hermétique de Nerval , where a Baphomet statue has been unearth for the first. 

He's been hired to keep the archaeological dig in the basement of this building clear of debris and to touch up damage to the doorframes with his little pot of paint.


It's a very responsible job. Unfortunately, he is not a very responsible person. He is a smoker and lights a cigarette everytime he can even if it's a place where he should not handle fire. 

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars[]

Thanks to him, George learns that there have been unusual visitors to see the excavation, none of them looked like archeologists. Khan was one of them, asking a lot of questions.

In order to get into the excavation site, George uses the man’s pot of paint to give a fake key a silver look.
