Payment of Existence
Faust’s powers, if any, are largely unknown.
He commands the ports of Barge as well as all inter-city trade. He is answerable only to the High Lord herself.
Faust is in charge of a large dock, which streches farther in either direction than can be easily seen. Yet from the smallest shipment of curios to the most massive Guild slave galleons, he keeps records of it all. He has erected few trade barriers or other laws, save that no ship may leave during the night without special permission.
While Horus-Aman controls the police force proper, Faust has a number of “inspectors” working for him that are de facto law enforcement on the docks.
