Liriss
Description Crime boss of Dargon. There is no really good description of Liriss in any of the text, but he's on the order of 6 feet (this is VERY large for the era), quite wide and strong, although there is no tone to indicate the strength, sharp features, brown, slightly curling hair, a neat mustache, brown eyes. He's generally a very pleasant man, unless people upset him. He will never attack anyone outright and will fight only in self-defense. If he is upset with someone, he will order a hit, first by his own people and if they fail, he seeks outside help. He will not stand traitors and will hunt people down to have the pleasure of disposing of them himself, although Liriss has NEVER killed anyone himself. Many unwholesome things are rumoured of Liriss, but nothing has ever been proven.
