Name: Lanier the Merchant
Location: The docks of Nis-Ton
Episodes: 2 (Series 1, episodes 1-2)
Appearance: Tall, strong and a little overweight. He wore travel clothes of fine quality silk and a turban and gave the appearance of being both rich and efficient.
Background: Lanier Whilst Elstan provided the money, Lanier provided the business and administrative acumen that Elstan lacked. He was loyal and completely trusted by Elstan; so much so that he balanced the accounts and had access to all the funds.
Strengths: Focussed and strong.
Weaknesses: Lacking in diplomacy and patience.
What Happened: Lanier hired the party to protect their cargo. He was impressed by their fighting prowess when they defended the cargo against orcs, but was betrayed in his trust when they attacked him in his bedroom at the Tanin’s Camel. Lanier was then thrown, unconscious into the Well of Souls.
Chance of recurring in future episodes: Low. He is not technically dead, but if they encountered the person once known as Lanier he would seem quite different.
