Sheriff Parkin is the law of a town which Cabal rarely speaks the name of.

He is in the employ of Cabal, paid annually on Christmas Eve, for the purpose of preventing the local citizenry forming a mob and attacking.

Parkin is oddly very understanding of Cabal's work, seeing the local necromancer as slightly better than the doctors, and his particular brand of honest dishonesty somewhat fascinates Cabal. Some 80% of the annual bribe goes directly to the local Police Benevolent Fund while the remaining sum is used to buy Parkin's children's christmas presents.
