A Troubled Economy
The Harbormaster of Assur
Fernid is the harbormaster of Assur. A wise, urban educated man who rose up through the ranks to get a very powerful position in this larger city. He is 47 winters, overweight, and balding, but always with a Taqiyah on. He generally wears a few layers of the fine silk linens to give him protection from the heat of the environment, while at the same time allowing his good cross breathing.
Fernid is an above board harbormaster, as most are in the Shining Lands, due to the cost of being stigmatized and punished for deceit at different levels. He has ran the harbor for over 16 years, and has a good many more years in him.
