Borndak Khalvonson controls a large portion of the trade in Siberys shards, and is highly ranked Concordian member of the business alliance, The Aurum. Borndak has a reputation for ruthless business negotiations, his competitors in the Siberys trade often backing out of deals rather than to compete directly with him. Borndak works out of Korth, capital of Karnath. Borndak was not on the ships, and is reputed to be quite angry at having lost the four skyships, but not angry enough to close ties with House Lyrandar, after all, all of the Great Houses are huge consumers of Siberys shards. You’ve learned that Borndak is a collector of unique things, that he has a predilection for women who are just as unique as his collection, and that while he considers himself to be one of the foremost scholars on ancient objects and antiquities, in truth his knowledge extends only far enough to impress his trading partners.
