Ambrose Shining is a silversmith and jeweler who lives in Wensley Village[1]. He appears in Dinner For Five, when he is robbed by Nuttal, Mound, and Tomas.

Description Edit

Little is revealed of Ambrose's physical description, though he is described to be wearing a leather vest[2].

However, Ambrose is noted to be a creature of habit, following a strict schedule everyday[3]. He was also noted to be cautious, having stored his precious materials in a hidden lockbox[4], which proved to be useful--though ultimately futile--when he was robbed. When Nuttal claims to be looking to have his mother's necklace fixed, Ambrose notes that tact and charm were not his long suits[5].

When he opens the door the three robbers--Nuttal, Mound, and Tomas--attack and restrain him.

They search the building and eventually find the key in one of Ambrose's pockets, using it to open to safe before making their escape.

They leave Ambrose tied up, tricking him into thinking they're headed toward Stiller's Road. Ambrose escapes and tells the town guard where the men had gone, however, it was the wrong location.

As a silversmith and jeweler, Ambrose is skilled in delicate metalworking and jewel polishing, though he mainly deals with jewelry design and repair. He is shown sketching jewelry designs with a graphite stylus[6].
