Looks like Colin Johanson is a Norn.

How is this spoiler? Fun fact: he also has an NPC in Queensdale (he's the one with the heart for the dam that gets attacked by earth elementals and harpies). Anet loves naming unimportant NPCs after members of the company or playerbase.

To be nitpicky, I remember that NPC being named something along the lines of Foreman Flannum (a reference to Eric Flannum). The point is still valid though. Anet loves easter eggs. I'm sure we'll see more of these floating around. Maybe Jeff Grubb and Ree Soesbee NPCs in the Priory?

I will say I'm a bit surprised to see him as a norn considering how easy it is to make an exact Colin doppelganger in the human CC.

I remember making a human warrior with the exact likeness to Colin, and I didn't even realize it...

Safe to say once I figured out why he looked so familiar, I swung my sword... Many times.

I see this has a spoiler because some people would like to find this "not very hidden" NPC's by themselves ^^

I talked to him, and his job was complex, but it had to do with connecting the market and other parts of the city.

Any surname with son at the end has Scandinavian origin (literally meaning son of X) so they made him a norn :)
