Actor: Dom DeLuise

Concept

Tropes

Benevolent Boss; Obsessed With Food

Details

A friendly local clothing merchant/wholesaler who is easily confused on the price of things. Occasional employer of Ser Kenrick.

Background

  • Barlowe was happy enough to live life as it came, but was forced by circumstance to wrest control of the family from his drunken-sot of a father, and bring the family and the family business to success and prominence.

Family

  • Unmarried—too busy to deal with that sort of thing
  • Average-sized extended family, long-time Capital merchants of various goods

Current

  • Primary: Barlowe's bumbling uncle has gotten himself into legal trouble (again), being sued for debts he can't possibly pay, and the family is in a bit of a crisis over how to sort him out.
  • Secondary: An otherwise-lucrative business deal is hung up, due to city laws passed unexpectedly, leaving Barlowe's business on the hook without hope of the quick profit they were expecting.

Notes

  • Always hungry
  • Home in the Garden District of the Capital; warehouse(s) in the Trades District—"Grand Barlowe Hall," impressive city mansion, if a bit less than the name suggests
