Scavenger Lord Oble
Scavenger Lord Oble is the wealthiest man in Arc. This old man started out with a huge inheritance and turned it into a massive fortune rivaling monarchs and small countries. His title comes from the fact that he used to do a little bit of adventuring when he was young, but found out that he could make more money sending out people to adventure for him, which turned out to be less dangerous and more rewarding. Now in his old age he is more interested in arranging lavish banquets and socializing with women one third his age. He lives in his enormous mansion downtown.
Oble is a weak, slightly obese, very old man. He dresses in the finest silks made in far away lands, his jewelry used to belong to the royal families of long gone kingdoms. He is always surrounded by dozens of servants and a scale of bodyguards.
