Bulvar the Merchant was a minor character first heard of in the tenth Dark Parables game, Goldilocks and the Fallen Star. He was a kind-hearted and honest merchant, one of the greatest merchants to ever exist.
Bulvar is not based on any particular fairy tale character.
Appearance and Personality Edit
We don't know much about Bulvar's appearance, as we mostly only hear about him and see vague depictions of him in artwork.
Bulvar was a kind and just man. Even with the powerful Ancient Dagger in his possession, he did not use it for ill deeds. At the end of his life, he made sure to entrust the dagger to someone who would treat it with the same ideals.

Bulvar and Rumpelstiltskin (from [[Goldilocks and the Fallen Star)
In the land of Barsia, there was a young man named Bulvar. He was a merchant's apprentice, working all day long to support his old parents. One night, when he was returning from a late errand for his master, he passed through a thick and dark forest. There, he met an evil imp named Rumpelstiltskin. "Off my path, you human mutt. In my forest, you shan't strut! If you want to live and pass, we shall play a game of chance. What flows like a river, yet has no banks? What can go forward, yet never back? If you guess wrong, it will be your doom, but if you're right, there's a gift for you!" Bulvar was a bright lad, but it took him some time to think of an answer. The imp smiled confidently. "No mortal has ever beaten me in the game of guessing, and it seems you aren't any smarter than those I've already encountered on this road. Well? Your time is almost up!" What the imp had just said gave Bulvar an idea. "The answer to your riddle is Time," he said, and that was, of course, the right answer. Rumpelstiltskin was furious, but he held his promise. As a reward for beating him in the game, Rumpelstiltskin gave Bulvar a magic dagger that lead him to become the biggest merchant that ever was.
