Physical Description:
With the appearance of an average man. He stands at 5'8". His hair is a common brown with normal brown eyes. His body is well taken care of but no where near a brawlers physique. He would seem like any other person on the street.

He has two faces that hide within each other. He seems kind and helpful always willing to give a hand or share a coin to those in need. But in truth he sees everyone as an asset. While many believe assassins are the only ones that are worth investing money, he uses his skills of negotiating and psychoanalysis to make anyone a willing pawn whether they are aware of it or not. He holds no particular fondness for any of his pieces and if he believed them to be useless he would simply cut ties with them, one way or another. He is dangerously pragmatic and practical in all things that he does.

Equipment & Abilities:
On the outside he wears common looking clothes as he sells his wares but on closer inspection all his clothes are of the finest fabrics that only a specialist would no if they inspected it. His clothes riddled with hidden pockets that carry money, small daggers, poison, elaborate keys, documents (forged and genuine) that he uses to get to those invite only places. He wears a black ring that has a picture of a coffin engraved into it which says to those knowledgeable of the dark underworld, that he specializes in the most insidious of dealers

Gerard is a skilled merchant making him excellent and negotiations and haggling. He is good at reading people finding out their worth and exploits weakness for simple purchases as well as knowing how to turn them into useful pawns. Gerarsd uses his skills of reading people and situations to incite others by spreading rumors that will benefit him in both long and short term ways. He is skilled at locating and procuring anything for his customers. He is also well versed in the laws of the countries he visits, knowing that it can always come in handy.

Historical Background:
Gerard's parents were both talented merchants that were respected in the city that he was born. When his parents were murdered and the law did nothing to find them his mission began to find those involved and make them suffer. Those his parents belongings were stolen and their place was burglarized Gerard went to a secret location where a large portion of their funds were stashed in case of an emergency. He soon carefully started hunting for clues by listening in taverns and talking to people o nthe street. He learned the names of those that killed his parents and those that had stolen from him. He even learned that the city watchmen were also involved. He was only 14 at the time and he knew he would not be able to kill them with his bare hands. So he gathered more information of them and one by one they were eliminated. The last one he met personally for it was a fellow merchant and a friend of his parents that had betrayed him. they were walking and talking in the street of how Gerard could stay with him that he would take care of him. It was shortly after this that someone expertly came from behind and with a quick motion slit his throat and walked off. Gerard played his part of the scared and traumatized boy as he was taken in by the Merchant's family and quickly climbed the mercantile ladder in the business until he had created reputation with the public as well as a repuation with the darker side of the city.

Having dealt with slavers, smugglers, thieves, royalty, pirates he has decided to expand his business into Rome and see if he can find anything, or anyone useful
