Fulvano is a semi-famous explorer hailing from the Vailian Republics. He is known as an eccentric traveller with a wish to see the world, and he prefers to travel by foot wherever possible, claiming to do so in order to gain the locals' appreciation of the sights, sounds, and smells of the lands he passed through. In practice, however, Fulvano often claimed that his explorations proved only that the world outside of the Vailian Republics was a foul, smelly place that paled in comparison to his homeland.
Though Fulvano himself is nowhere to be found in the game, plenty of evidence of his travels can be found, especially in the locations around Gilded Vale. Notably, in Anslög's Compass, three dropped pages from his journal can be found, wherein he writes about several meetings with fellow travellers in the areas around Gilded Vale. Fulvano would give each of these travellers a gift, namely some of his own travelling gear, before parting with them, in order to help them on their own journeys. Ironically, all three of these travellers can be found killed by wildlife in various locations not far from where Fulvano describes meeting them.
