Recent Gateway crime lord
Merkas Gladwing was the closest thing Gateway had to a crime lord. He had contacts with pirates in The Shattered City and exchanged salvage for them. Gladwing took sight of Tolas Gundar’s business in order to make an example of the newer, pirate-averse Trade Houses. Gladwing met his end at the hands of Blackthorn during his assault on the Windblown Floatsam where Tolas was hiding out.
