This octogenarian professor has a long whispy beard and a pronounced stoop. He wears a baggy purple gown and floppy hat. His huge specticles give his eyes a permanently startled expression. His house off Sumpfstrasse is stacked from floor to ceiling with books. Upon his retirement from Aldorf University, Hieronymus settled in Stromforf to continue his studies in peace, away from the bustle of the city.
