Shark's Findings on Albert Patyr
Shark's information is about a year old, but he was
right to recognize the name.
Albert Patyr is a middle-aged man, with a long history
of questionable dealings. He always works on the edge of legality.
He's done courier work, smuggling, blockade running, picking up goods that
aren't legal somewhere and moving them somewhere else. He works for
himself. He's supposedly reliable in that nobody has ever questioned
his abilities -- or if they have, they've retracted it later.
He's mixed up in a lot of dodgy business.
The effort involved in putting together a case against him is out of proportion
to the business he does. He generally does jobs for people, although
he has done some independent stuff. He's well enough off, he just
seems to like the trade.
Patyr has picked up a lot of skills. He can
do almost anything to some extent or another, and can turn on the charm
when he needs to. He has no history of violence; any associated with
his dealings is probably done by someone else.
When last heard of, he was working under the guise
of the Associated Surplus Distribution Company, based at Dekalb
/ Querion. ASDC is known to traffic in pirated goods, including parting
out trophy ships captured by pirates. They'll also run courier service
for dubious goods, no questions asked, and sometimes provide transport
for people who need to get somewhere without going through the proper channels.
