One often forgets that Gha’alia is home to more than dark figures clad in iron and hide. It is the notion of many young Gha’alian soldiers that their dark world runs solely on the sway of their sword, forgetting entirely that there always has been, and always must be, the presence of commerce on their sullen little isle. Duliae is an esteemed figure, unique in this status among generals, tacticians and swordsmen. He has spent many long years cultivating trade lines and pumping blood into Gha’alia’s economy, an uphill battle if ever there was one in a place such as this. It would take a relentless, tenacious, cunning man determined to succeed, and Duliae has, splendidly. He is very wealthy, very well connected, and very untrustworthy.
