Larton is the non-player character locksmith in Wehnimer's Landing. While his work is immediate his fee is not based on the contents of the box, meaning sometimes the net revenue from a chest is negative.

Behind the Scenes
Larton is an anomaly in that he was given a new name after the I.C.E. Age, being referred to as "Valson" in some rare cases in the Landing. Larton still has the same name he did originally. Since Larton does not exist in the source books, unlike some of the other town NPCs, there would be no need to change him.
