Artephius is a character from The Adventures of Puss in Boots.
Artephius runs one of San Lorenzo's finest macramé owl shops. At first he seems like your run-of-the-mill confused old man, but it turns out he's over a thousand years old and is history's greater alchemist. He has moments of clarity, but then other times he's bug-chuggin' crazy. His magic has kept him alive for centuries, but his brain has gotten so filled up with stuff he can't remember a whole lot. Now he's just really macramé owls.
