He is an old man, but not so old as to be weak or confused. He seems very much in charge of the encampment, including lists of provisions, allotments and other things laid out on his makeshift table. He is scarred and weatherworn, perhaps from an earlier career as a fighter.
Whelan is the leader of the encampment and a key questor, responsible for giving out the first couple of quests a newbie will likely undertake. One east of Whelan's hut can be found one of the first waypoints a newbie will encounter.
