De Facto Ruler of Portsmouth
The Oligarch, though recently having assumed the position of Portsmouth’s ruler. Has proven himself a capable man, reigning in the more ambitions merchants , bringing order to the more lawless sections of the city and capitalizing on the disaster of the Dark Tide and the emergence of the ruins as an opportunity to rejuvenate the older more unsightly sections of town. Mostly at the expense of the poor and less powerful of the city.
His rise however has not been an easy affair. Along the way he has made numerous powerful enemies and while imposing his rule, some would say iron rule, earning the ire of many of the poorer people of Portsmouth. Were it not for the assistance of his wife’s fortune and reputation , and the soldiers it buys, his rule would most likely be in jeopardy.
