Nice try, Ergo, but everybody knows you don't get to be the world's most famous jockey by being either fat or lazy.

What we DO know is that the way you get to be a jockey is by spending some time in Corel prison. You have to be the strongest of the strong to earn the right to travel up with Ester and take your chances on the Gold Saucer racetrack. And you have to be the strongest of the strongest of the strong to win a name as the greatest jockey of all.

It's true we don't know anything about the Old Traveller of Kalm. We do know that he's old. The fighting skills of his salad days are just a memory. We don't even know for sure that he's a traveller. He might have collected all his objects by trading rather than travelling. All we know for sure is that he plans to go on a journey after he finishes trading with Cloud:

"I guess it's time to go on a journey for the souls of my departed friends......"

That kind of journey sounds more like a pilgrimage, a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing, than a regular habit of his.
