| Thomas Kaidkin|
|First Appearance||Fable III - Framed for Murder|
|Last Appearance||Fable III|
Russell, an art dealer in Bowerstone Old Quarter, has been buying up Thomas's paintings for years, seeing potential in the artist and hoping to sell his paintings for a profit. However, since Thomas is relatively unknown, no one is interested in buying them. Russell will ask the Hero to kill Thomas for five hundred gold, in order to increase the value of his artwork.
Thomas is a relatively easy target to spot, sitting in the village square and painting a new picture. Although his assassination will draw the attention of the guards, this can be circumvented by taking him out to the bridge first.
Once Kaidkin is killed, the after-quest message states that his assassination has guaranteed Russell's fortune. This indicates that the relatively unknown artist did indeed gain fame after his death, ensuring that Russell's plan worked.
