Philip Vorloi was a successful merchant prince at the age of 30 in his native Thyatis. Given the chance to follow Duke Stefan to Karameikos and “get in on the ground floor” of an emerging nation, he did so eagerly, and has never regretted the decision. A shrewd and farsighted man, Vorloi has always acted in the best interests of both his clan and the Duke. He lent money and his considerable expertise to Admiral Hyraksos to help build the Karameikan Navy (Which helped keep the seas safe for his own merchant vessels); he has successfully resisted the efforts of the Merchants Guild to curb his trade (and of the Veiled Society to intimidate him). Vorloi’s wife perished of illness five years ago. He has two children: A son, Grygori (a hopeless idiot) and a daughter, Marianna (his pride and joy).
Vorloi is a strong-willed and independent man. His code is to treat others as they treat him. The Duke has always treated him fairly and honorably; he returns the favor. The Radu family has always treated him with contempt; he returns the sentiment. Vorloi is generous with those who impress him but is intolerant of stupidity and incompetence; the feebleminded condition of his son drives him to rage.
Vorloi is a beefy man in his early 60s. Though rather thick in the middle and thin on top, he’s still imposing – tall, looming, and impressive. His balding hair is white, his eyes blue; he wears a neat beard and mustache. He dresses in bright clothing of Thyatian make and wears much jewelry, mostly necklaces and finger-rings.
DMing Notes: Vorloi is the third corner of the triangle of Great Families of Specularum. The clashes between Torenescu, Radu and Vorloi provide scenarios in Karameikos.
