The Bard, also known as the Sad Bard, is a person known by anyone in The Pit.
He often rests in various taverns, where he will play any song the people ask him to, and in breaks between playing, he will help with any problems with his advice. He seems to know a lot about the people and The Pit itself. He has almost supernatural ability to show up unannounced in the places where his advice would be needed. Those two of his qualities, mixed with his amazing musical talent, are the reasons why people often joke that he is some kind of fae or another creature of the folklore. It is certain that he has some kind of history with The Wanderer, as when they meet, he will always greet the Wanderer, while Wanderer will be very cold towards him.
