Kestiff Drudy is an exotic pet merchant from the Menagerie Coast, branding his merchandise as "Creatures of Fantastical Possible Talent". As an NPC, he is played by Matthew Mercer in Critical Role and Marisha Ray in "A Familiar Problem: Sprinkle's Incredible Journey" (Sx68).



Kestiff is a heavyset man with tan, sun weathered skin. He has a smooth, bald head with a little bit of stubble coming in around the sides.[1] He has a double chin that pokes out from under the scarf that he has loosely draped over his head to shield his scalp from the sun.[2]


Kestiff seemed relatively positive and jolly. His eyes were very welcoming.[3]


On their journey to Nicodranas, the Mighty Nein woke up from the sound of hooves outside south of the Wuyun Gorge. They saw two carts heading up the road led by Kestiff Drudy. In the back of the cart, there were numerous sizes of metallic cages with of number of well-kept creatures inside.[4] Of his wares, Beau and Jester bought the large owl (Professor Thaddeus), the crimson weasel (Sprinkle), and the blink puppy (Nugget) for a combined total of 140 gp.

Five days later, in a non-canon one-shot "A Familiar Problem: Sprinkle's Incredible Journey" (Sx68), a team of familiars including Sprinkle and Nugget accidentally stumbled onto Kestiff's cart and freed most of the remaining caged creatures.[5]
