Eberron - Dreams of Xen'drik
Human Merchant of Stormreach
Saeragar Marmagilda is a wealthy merchant in the city of Stormreach. In a city known for it’s laissez-faire and cutthroat nature, Saeragar is regarded as one of the most ruthless operators in more than a century. His numerous businesses deal in almost every trade good imaginable, and he constantly works to undercut all his competitors. He has no qualms about engaging in acts that would have him arrested in other cities, including arson, robbery, extortion and blackmail. This predatory attitude has made him staggeringly wealthy, and has also brought him to the attention of the Storm Lords. Saeragar is very careful to not tread on those noble toes, but if a sure-fire opportunity presented itself he would surely make a move into the markets owned and controlled by the Storm Lords, assuming he could get away with it somehow. Saeragar loves to spend his wealth ostentatiously, which means he also spends plenty on bodyguards and magical protection. Everyone he has ruined in the market place would dearly love to see him brought down, but his money thus far has kept him very safe.
