Stuffy consortium representative in Bloodcove
Smithers is a straight-laced, conservative representative of the Aspis Consortium. His job involves meeting with clients and businessmen from other nations and show them around Bloodcove. He is knowledgeable about the city and its customs, though he dislikes the climate.
Chapter 1: Arrival in Bloodcove
Smithers individually met with each member of the company, greeting them at the docks and guiding them to the Witchlight. None of them took him up on the offer of a guided tour.
Three days later, he met with the whole company at the Consortium’s headquarters where he explained the parameters of the expedition to the company and gave them their Charter. He then invited them to lunch and played them up for investors.
