12th Level (Noble 3 / Spy 6 / Water Dancer 3)

Magister Illyrio was a dealer in spices, gemstones, dragonbone, and other, less savoury things. He had friends in all of the Nine Free Cities, it was said, and even beyond, in Vaes Dothrak and the fabled lands beyond the Jade Sea. It was also said that he’d never had a friend he wouldn’t cheerfully sell for the right price.
A Game of Thrones

One of the ruling council of merchant-princes of Pentos, Magister Illyrio Mopatis is a massive, yet light-footed man. In his youth, he was an accomplished bravo and water dancer. He sports rings on every finger, and often is heavily perfumed to cover his odour. He is pallidskinned, with a forked beard that is dyed bright yellow. His teeth are yellow and crooked, and he is a schemer and flatterer.

Though slavery is outlawed in the Free Cities, Illyrio’s household has many slaves. Hungry for power, he gave refuge to Viserys and Daenerys Targaryen and arranged their connection with Khal Drogo and the Dothraki. At her wedding, Illyrio gives Daenerys the
fateful bride-gift of three dragon eggs. He is involved in a complex conspiracy, working alongside Varys the Spider towards some secret goal and undoubtedly scheming for more power and riches.
