The quick-witted bartender and owner of Caer Bannog
Norm Claven is the mortal owner and operator of Caer Bannog (Floyd Carnation’s bar). Several years ago, Norm decided that his career as an accountant just wasn’t satisfying enough and decided to sink his life savings into buying an old Irish pub that sat right on the border between Roxbury and South End. Even though he was reasonably knowledgeable in accounting, he just didn’t have the knack to run his own business and times got very tough for him. Fortunately, Floyd Carnation (a regular patron of the bar) didn’t want to see the bar go away and struck up a bargain with Norm. Floyd gave Norm access to resources that keep the bar in business and a bit of glamour. Norm, in turn, gave Floyd a place to live and conduct business for the changeling Spring Court and a venue to hear and play music from time to time. This pledge has been renewed yearly now for a while. Now Norm can take care of his family and enjoy his career as a bartender. He still can’t seem to make the business work, but somehow there just always seems to be money to get the bills paid and keep the lights on and the drinks cold.
