The Merchant is a man who resides in the East Greenwich area and rarely cares/needs to venture out of his territory. He deals with fine wines and cigars and hosts a plethora of crazy parties filled with friends. The Merchant currently has only one trade ship of his own but he can call upon a sizeable fleet if the need presents itself

The Parties at The Merchant's trade post are very exclusive, and only those who are on the guest list are allowed to attend. He is usually fairly peaceful but if angered, he is a formidable foe as he is equally as formidable as he is large! Should this not be enough to deter any issues, he can always call upon a small army to aid him in his endeavors. He can usually be found by the smoke clouds puffing away from his fine cigars that he perpetually smokes.

The Merchant was orginally named by Adam and known by only a few. Even today (years later) there are few who know The Merchant, and even fewer who know The Merchant's real name but there are countless who know of The Merchant and The Merchant's parties.
