Ah, well that explains why I could not google his name. If I recall he is from the Earth Camp. I think he had something about adventuring... He wanted a sword, then shield, and then to go to a place. I thought I walked him to his place in that the place on the map vanished along with his quest in the side bar/list. Is their a back log of completed quests I can look at? Maybe if I find it and do it again then he will go away. Though for the moment he is just following me, and does all the same things a follower does, but i can't see his items or access his dialog box. Thankfully it is in story mode so I am sure when I finish it eventually then the next run will be Birney less.
