Clavel Vaide – The patriarch of Vaide Mercantile, a merchant house of Dunstrand. He has been working as an agent for the Dark Gods since his conversion 15 years ago. The party has been a thorn in his side since they thwarted his plans controlling family Culahey. Unlike ___ though, he will not let personal feelings come in the way. He works to the party’s perceived benefit on the surface, and against them behind the scenes. He is the only player who will likely not underestimate the party, as they have thwarted him multiple times. He is the binding influence of the league though, for it was his direction that agents of Elancil and Culahey were brought in under the guise of Merchant City forces and accepted by the twin river agents.
