I'm playing the game again, and doing some experimenting with the items. When I tried showing the flier about Le Flay to Nipperkin, he revealed an interesting piece of information. According to him, the stories regarding Le Flay don't match. Some have reported seeing a redbearded giant, others a peg legged midget, and he brings up the possibility that multiple people are using the name "Morgan Le Flay."
I can only think of two characters who match those descriptions, and both would have reason to work together.
