Alfred Long-

lives alone in a yellow house on a hill outside of Erkew. He works for Taka-Taka, the local recycling center. Alfred loves his job and considers himself a hunter of the same ilk as Sir Manfred Longbody, his great-great-great Grandfather, only Alfred hunts for treasures hidden amongst trash. Most recently, Alfred found a marbled shoe horn and traded it for several handfuls of Amperberry Pie. Aside from finding and trading treasure, Alfred loves to sing songs and make enormous soap bubbles that he pops with his antlers. This makes him quite popular with the town’s children. Although not religious, Alfred likes to pray. Mostly he prays he’ll find a wooden violin and that one day he might have the good fortune of sharing his home with a lovely pet goat.
