Age of worms (DSP)
A Corpulent elemental of corruption and bad taste, Balabar Smenk lords his political clout over everyone in Diamond Lake save the governer-mayor and garrison commander, whom he privately mocks.
Smenk has wrestled four mines into his possession in the last 10 years, and has designed upon the rest.
A coven of sycophants and hired goons surrounds him at all times.
Rumors suggest that he has powerfully connected friends in The Free City.
