Gruff Trading Post Owner
CG Middle Age Taldan Male Expert 2
Oleg Leveton is a stern and somewhat unimaginative middle-aged man with a no-nonsense attitude. He runs a trading post on the fringe of the Stolen Lands. It’s location away from the Sellen River has not made it a huge financial success, but this is fine with Oleg. All Oleg ever really wanted with his trading post was a place for him and his wife Svetlana to live far enough from the sins of civilization without living so far that they couldn’t enjoy all of its benefits. Accepting a charter from Restov to rebuild an abandoned border fort into a trading post seemed like the perfect solution. Oleg and Svetlana have spent the past six months rebuilding the old fort.
Four months ago, bandits under a mysterious leader named the Stag Lord began to collect “protection money” from Oleg. Were it not for the fact that he feared for his wife’s fate, he would have doubtless sacrificed his life to the bandits in a foolish attempt to defend his stock when they first paid a visit. With the arrival of the PCs, Oleg likes the idea of having extra help to defend against the bandits, but he’s disturbed by the implications that the PCs are being sent to explore the Greenbelt. Even though the bandits have been causing him trouble, he doesn’t welcome even the hint of an attempt by Restov to expand civilization into the Stolen Lands, for this would engulf his new home back into the society he’s worked so hard to avoid. He knows better than to voice his opinions aloud, and instead opts for a gruff attitude and leaves the majority of the interactions with the PCs to his wife.
