Vismund de Rabianací
Vismund is a wealthy man, the only heir of a long, faded line of nobles in Varlyrio known as the de Rabianací family. Along with his associates, he deals in gemstones, precious metals, and antiquities, selling his luxury goods to the most affluent Varlyrian Lords. Though he is of noble heritage, he is fairly unknown in the upper crust of society outside of his business. He studied abroad, though nobody can say where with any certainty, despite the many rumors. As such, Vismund was not present at the various social functions of Varlyrio, and is considered to be a bit of an enigmatic outsider.
He returned home to Varlyrio after the dust began to settle on the battlefields of recent war, taking control of the vast family fortune and quickly turning it into a lucrative business. He has piqued the curiosity of many, but prefers a private life and does not divulge much of his past. His disciples are also tight-lipped, about Vismund, about themselves, and about the business. They transport the goods by sea in the dead of night, cloaked in darkness. They are his family, and his closest confidants.
