Storm's tavern contest

Over on fantasynet they have another contest in the works. the challenge is to create a patron of Storm's tavern (the virtual pub on the message board) Here is my entry: Bakash

Some say he is an exiled prince from the Southern Kingdoms. Others say he is an ex-slave who won his freedom in the arena. One thing everyone agrees on is that if there is something you need or a problem you want taken care of, Bakash is the man to see. To the “Quality “of the city he is a merchant –prince who skirts the edge of propriety just enough to be rakish and fashionable. To the Street folk and those who make their way on the dodgy path, he is a man not to be trifled with, a slaver, an assassin, nothing happens in the maze without Bakash knowing about it. He has investments throughout the city. Gambling houses, Brothels, opium dens, he has slave ships and caravans. What he doesn’t have is Storm’s tavern. No one knows why a man of his power and standing is interested in a nondescript tavern for soldiers of fortune and other rogues. It doesn’t matter why. The point is he wants it, and eventually Bakash always gets what he wants.
