Character Type: Merchant
Setting: Fantasy/Sword & Sorcery/Conan-esque
Aderillin SeVinis leads the nomadic life of a caravanning merchant. Born and raised among the caravan, he has spent his entire life traveling along the string of city states that dot the Imperial highway from Ighn Hall, the seat of the Teldariam Empire to the Ulder Hills where the vast underground dwarven cities of the hill folk are – a journey some two and a half thousand miles one way – more than a year travel time for him and the caravan he travels with.
As a man, Aderillin is stocky, though not overweight, around 45 with darkish hair and a full beard. He dresses according to his station, marking him as a merchant of the Teldariam realm, and so allowed certain privileges, though these are never discussed. At present, he has no family, but does often share the road with another trader friend, Kaldan of Ciric, a tall man of exquisite intellect and a bard by trade. Good friends for longer than either can remember, the trips the two share together are recalled fondly and often. Aderillin is known in the caravan for his steadiness in most situations, fair trading, and even voice. Rarely coming to an anger, many come to him to settle petty disagreements. He is not terribly imaginative, but is reliable, and therefore trusted by his peers.
Aderillin specializes in dwarven wares – the best of any make. As a tradesman, he knows his clients and customers equally well, and has a keen love of the goods he hauls – how could he not? Dwarven goods rival all in craftsmanship, detail, beauty, and value.
Aderillin harbors a deepening dislike of the Kings Guard, as of late their interest in dwarven goods has increased, and, not surprisingly, have the bribes he has to pay for smuggling other… items. But then, slavery in the empire has always been judiciously ignored, for the most part.
