Ben is a human non-player character.
He is the person that you have to rescue in the quest Across the Wall in Pre-Searing. A ranger who was separated from his outfit when it came under attack near Piken Square, Ben is well-known as a survivor.
When going Charr-hunting in The Northlands (a popular activity of many relatively high-level characters in Pre-Searing Ascalon), bring him along as he can be quite helpful since he adds to the party number. He deals moderate damage and makes excellent use of Troll Unguent when attempting to heal himself.
He has used his influence in the media to support numerous up-and-coming bands, and has, for example, given Interröbang Cartel more airplay than any other DJ in the world.
