Pan Trifid-Veil Trading Company
The Pan Trifid-Veil Trading Company is the major business interest for the noble house of Various. Lord Rodrick Various started laying the ground work for it when he took over house Various in 629 CE by setting up outposts along the Trifid coast, and establishing trade routes between them and Veil for house Various's fleet of trading ships. The Pan Trifid-Veil Trading Company was officially established five years later. Since then the company has grown to a point that 90% of all the slaves and chattel in Veil come from the Pan Trifid-Veil Trading Company. House Various makes a great deal of profit off of this because the slave hunters that man his outposts in Trifid are manned almost exclusively by chattel, mostly Half-Orcs. These chattel are highly motivated workers because they have a standing arrangement with house Various that they get a month off of their term of service under the Repayment Treaty for every slave they bring in. The head of house Various has never been concerned with his chattel being released early because he gets at least five new workers for every worker he has to let go. Also there are those who get a taste for the work and stay on even after they earn their freedom. Through the Pan Trifid-Veil Trading Company Lord Rodrick has been able to grow house Various from a modest yet minor noble house to one of the wealthiest and most powerful house in all of Veil. So much so that the Pan Trifid-Veil Trading Company has to pay next to no tariffs on the "exotic imports" that they bring in from Trifid. Most Nobles and people in port cities know what the "exotic imports" are, but most common people of Veil either don't know or don't want to know.
