Selkirk was the owner of a tavern called the Ruby Glass in the city of Meadenvil who appeared briefly in Shadows Linger.

Shadows Linger[]

Selkirk held a business meeting at his bar with Marron Shed, a secret fugitive from nearby Juniper. Until recently, Shed owned and managed the Iron Lily tavern in Juniper's rundown Buskin neighborhood. Shed wanted to start a brand new life in Meadenvil, and persuaded Selkirk that he would make a fine business partner. Selkirk casually mentioned that the night business at the Ruby Glass should pick up soon after "the scare is over". When pressed for details, Selkirk described the past week's nighttime disappearances of about a half dozen people that could not be attributed to press gangs. Shed's heart sank as he realized that some surviving castle creatures were attempting to rapidly build another black castle, now in Meadenvil, just like the one that brought horror and ruin to Juniper. After a few moments of dread, Shed pulled himself together to urgently leave. As he did, he assured Selkirk that they were in business, and that he would return the next day to seal their deal legally. This would not be the case, however, as Shed would be killed in Meadenvil's countryside in subsequent events.
