Tafik Regex Marmota, known as Gex, is a member of the Kaliphlin Guild. He is currently Master Cartographer for the guild. Gex Marmota lives with his wife, Countess Wyndifera Ed-Wardhi (he married well!), in Marja-Rhytaville, a small coastal hamlet across the Muktifra Bay from the city of Messahmuk, on the south central Kaliphlin coast.
Background[edit | edit source]
Gex Marmota was born the illegimate son of a minor noble on the Southern Ocean coast. After his mother fell out of favor with father, his stepmother sold them into slavery. He spent his childhood as a slave repairing hyperdrive engines... No, wait, wrong story... He spent his early childhood as a slave owned by a master builder, learning the builder and stonemason's trades. That accounts for his penchant for building and architecture. He was then sold to a local crime boss, and spent his teens as a slave on smuggling and pirate ships, developing into an accomplished sailor, and a cutthroat fighter.
After leading a slave mutiny and escaping, he led a gang of former slaves to sack the slave port of Mughraz, earning notoriety and a small fortune, as well as the enmity of key bosses of the slave trade. After a few years of seaborne smuggling around the Goolag Archipelago, he switched mostly to land-based smuggling and providing armed escort services for caravans and traveling nobles. (Apparently he is very good at persuading potential customers that they need his services...)
Recently he has left the smuggling and escort businesses mostly to his subordinates. A spate of treasure-hunting in the Mystic Mountains brought even more wealth and notoriety. Some say he saw some unspeakable things in the tomb of Amon-Ka-Tuhamen that have affected his mind, but he was always a bit crazy. He then bought or seized a small province on the coast, and has spent his time building castles, towns, and fortresses, while still fitting in the odd quest here and then.
Occupations[edit | edit source]
Gex's current occupations include mapmaking for the Guild, building in the greater Muk-Muk Valley, trading and shipping, and managing his estates and wineries. His trading organization is called Southern Cross Trading. He occasionally goes adventuring and questing. He also assists on diplomatic missions to other lands.
