Karon was a boatman who ferried passengers across the River Stagus, those who were brave enough to venture into the mysterious realm of World's End. He was a man of the Elder Race and three hundred years old when Kull encountered him. He is described as an elderly man with long white hair and beard, but was large as Kull himself, tall and powerfully built. Despite being clad in ragged garments, Karon had a kingly and awe-inspiring presence. His luminous eyes were bright despite his age, and he spoke with a deep resonant voice. How Karon came to be the ferryman of the Stagus, and why he remained in such capacity, is never explained.[1]
