Templeton Fig is a resident of New Seran on Scadrial who works for the Set. He is the manager of the Seran New District Cemetery and appears to be at least somewhat wealthy.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Templeton uses the curse "Trell's soul!", which seems to indicate that he is a Trell worshiper.[1]

He has a collection of stuffed albino animals, which he keeps fastidiously neat and arranged. He has been collecting them for some time, occasionally stuffs them himself, and is very familiar with the difference between a specimen that has been bleached and a true albino.[1]


Templeton was tasked by the Set with recovering ReLuur's spike from the mass grave in which it had been buried. He retrieved it and sent it to Dulsing via a courier, leaving a note in the graveyard's ledger instructing the gravekeepers to inform him immediately if anyone came asking about the mass grave.[1]

When Wayne and Marasi went to the cemetery to look for the spike, they were attacked by hired assassins after Dechamp sent to Templeton. Having survived the attack but failed to find the spike, they found Templeton's note in a hidden ledger book in the gravekeeper's shack. They then went to Templeton's house, where Wayne impersonated Death and used Dechamp's corpse to scare him into revealing the location of the spike. Templeton was subsequently arrested by the New Seran constables based on the evidence of graverobbing found in the ledger.[1]


Templeton lives with a skinny and worn woman named Destra who is nervous around him. It is implied that they are in a relationship together.[1]
