Clarker
Sentient who makes a living through sifting through marketplaces for unusual artifacts. The items Clarkers find or trade in are not necessarily clarketech, and most of them turn out to be hoaxes, counterfeits, or just cases of misidentification of common objects. But every so often, something truly rare and unique turns up. A single good find can set a Clarker up in the lap of luxury for life.
