Faustus Wentworth is the brother of Archibald Wentworth III and uncle to Harold. Faustus grew up with Archibald in a noble household but became enamoured with the life of famous adventurers. Shirking the tradition of noble households he eschewed a life of bureaucracy and governance and instead became part of a team that would later become known as the Delvers. The Delvers were essentially a team of dungeon raiders, registered with the Three Heroes Adventurer's Guild in Firamustus, that would procure artifacts for clients or for profit. On one such raid Faustus discovered an orb that seemed to match the stars in the night sky which he would later gift to his nephew Harold. Faustus and the Delvers have not been seen in over 4 years and are considered either missing or dead.
- When creating Faustus, Ross had imagined a character that combined the energy of Captain Jack Harkness from Doctor Who, with the sophistication bought to roles by Peter Serafinowicz.
