Curse of the Crimson Throne
Former Prominent Smuggler in Old Korvosa
In Old Korvosa there was plenty of people who could get you things, but only a few could smuggle in the high priced items, black market goods & even people. Vestor Delyk was one of them. He had made quite the name for himself that he had made enough coin to only take jobs of his choosing decreasing the likely hood of his methods being discovered. In Korvosa his network was small and reliable, with well-greased palms and information. Unlike competition among legal businesses, the unsavory corners foster power struggles that usually result in violent ends.
Vestor had a few up and coming competitors, those that he was not able to keep in check were dealt with. However, Vestor never had a taste for the lethal means of dealing with his competition which would be his downfall. He would have a new threat, hat would use his former enemies as pawns in his demise. A new family moved to Old Korvosa, with pockets already deep with gold & willingness to get their hands dirty. Vestor was soon behind Bars, framed for multiple murders.
Luckily his methods that worked on the outside also worked on the inside. He had the guards owing him favors in just a few days, using this to get himself his choice in cell mates. This Zarian fellow and his dwarven friend should suit me as some hired muscle.
