Sham's The Enemy Within
Associated with the Southgate-Ostwald Gang in Middenheim, Josef charges high fees for interesting information. He traded secrets about the city’s recent tax hikes to Adelyn Zumwald and Willow Alderberry in exchange for a golden idol from the Cathedral of Ulric. He later traded what the party had learned about the blackmailing of Sparsam and the Ar-Ulric for some gold and information about the availability of laughing powder from The Pit. The next day, after further information exchange, Alric Konrad decided that Gropius knew too much, and snuck in to his home to kill him.
