”Who cares about hope? I want commitments. Will titles be handed out? Who gets the trade contracts?—Paxen
Appearance and Personality
He is nicknamed the "Gentleman Idrian" and earns a living by running brothels. Despite the religious beliefs of his homeland of Idris, he is comfortable in his fancy, bright clothing and carries a fine cane. He has achieved at least the first Heightening, which is also taboo. Based on his conversation with Vivenna, he is more concerned about earning money than about supporting the cause of his monarch. While he is not above taking risks for monetary gain, he is also a pragmatist and demands "commitments" from Vivenna before lending his assistance with her plan.
One of Denth's contacts, and former supporter of Vahr's rebellion, Paxen seems to be very well connected in the Idrian slums. He, along with Rira and Ashu, agrees to meet with Denth and Vivenna to discuss causing unrest in the city. Vivenna hopes that her efforts to stir up trouble will inspire her fellow Idrians in the city and undermine Hallandren's attempts to go to war with her homeland.
