He was born in 3431 in the Petrei district of Verduria city, to a struggling furniture maker. He spent his teenage years engaged in trade, various half-reputable scams (one he is willing to talk about is selling shares in tontines), some minor thievery, and a stint or two in the merchant marine.
He became an agent for an important merchant, travelling the kingdom on his business for some years; he retired to start a ladies’ accessories factory, which failed. He began trading and investing, with his brother Mudray, and became wealthy after backing an expedition to Moreo Ašcai which, famously, outran a Kebreni man-o-war all the way back to Verduria.
He bought the Corona Inn (3466), then of middling reputation, and turned it into the most popular inn in the city. During this time, partly due to the Verdurian law that innkeepers are responsible for thefts and murders that occur on their premises, he was called on to investigate a number of crimes and mysterious doings. He came to the notice of the King when he foiled a plot against the Princess Tilye.
He was elected to the Esčambra in 3473, associated with the Navirora party; and named Prime Minister in 3477. He has aggressively pursued commerce and industry, pushed for the reoccupation of Lácatur, and attempted to build a plain-wide coalition against Dhekhnam.
