The Survivors of Lemuria
Young with lots of Bling.
Karthik is a member of the Merchants’ Guild, one of the guilds which rule Kajalla. He is the chairman of the Guild Council, which makes him the effective leader of the city, as the Chairman wields both executive and judicial authority. Like many Chairmen before him, Karthik is a compromise candidate, but overall has been doing a good enough job to keep his position. The fact that he has recently received the aid of a strong mercenary party of adventurers seems to be helping him.
