Aurum Runes · The Midas Giant

Descended from a family of master goldsmiths, Aurum Runes is responsible for many of the most exquisite pieces of art and engineering throughout the mansion.

As a younger man he worked tirelessly in the forges, smelting with methods of his own devising until fumes from a particularly demanding project almost destroyed his health and forced him to create a specialised welding mask to monitor his heart rate.

Aurum has been given a seemingly simple task to complete during the ball — but even if he succeeds, can he be sure he will be richer for it?
