Signs and portents
Daerga of Ekimon
Travelling merchant, specializing in Jewlery
A smug, self-satisfied and grasping man, Daerga is none the less a successful mercantyler. He travels constantly, concentrating on the border areas between Rethem, Kanday and Tharda. He has found that while the danger is high, the profits to be made are equally high. His specialty is jewellery. He buys it in the larger cities and sells it to the wives of rich nobles and guildsmen. Because he carries such a large store of valuable jewels, he has hired a bodyguard, Braen of Golotha. When they travel, he hires mules and additional servants to carry his belongings and merchandise. He will also hire an extra guard or two for added security.
Born on the 19th of Larane (Angberelius) in the town of Heroth in 694TR to a moderate sized family of merchants, he adopted the guild’s practice early. Proving he had a head for numbers, his father apprenticed him with a local caravan master. He quickly found he preferred the traveling to the practice of buying and selling. His family still welcomes him back when he visits Heroth; although his four siblings have scattered to the winds, all taking their father’s trade. The family is not wealthy, but lives comfortably in Heroth although his mother is suffering greatly from old age. His father is far from fit, but healthy none the less. There is regular talk of the two of them paying for their retirement in a Peonian healing house; but it is just talk yet.
