McManus is a rough and tumble young man, he has always been a bit of a hothead growing up, but in the grand scheme of things he is a loyal and true friend.

McManus is an only child, raised by the Miller, he has grown strong lifting heavy bags of grain and flour.

Never a very smart one, he has an uncanny ability to read people.

McManus desires to leave this little town, and adventure, he is afraid to do it alone and is recruiting fellow village members to go on a quest.
