Angston the Lender might be described by some people as a loan-shark; and they would be completely correct. He runs his business out of a small shop called the Silent Partner in the Oriat neighborhood, located in the Varisian city of Kaer Maga. There he provides short-term, high-interest loans to those who can't get them from the much more respectable (and reasonable) Bank of Abadar. He is meticulous in his record-keeping, and utterly ruthless when it comes to collecting his payments, never believing in second-chances. Nevertheless, he is a man of his word and doesn't try to cheat those already exploited by his exorbitant interest rates and demanding payment schedule.
