Lynn C. Thompson is a Rare Character and Trader that can be found at Trader Camps. He can be temporarily recruited for a single mission.

C. Thompson is the CEO of Cold Steel Knives. He offers to sell the Zweihander sword for 45 Food when first encountered. If the party asks for a 'demo' he will join the party for one mission (similar to the Knight) in order to show off the sword.

If Lynn survives the mission with you, he will offer the Zweihander for sale one last time before he departs, he will offer a 33% discount making it available for 30 Food instead.

While travelling with the party, Lynn will regularly speak, plugging his company and the Zweihander.

If Lynn dies while on a mission with the party he will not drop the Zweihander and the chance to purchase it will be lost.
