Name: Nizzan Screamwhistle, formerly known as Trade Prince.
Job/Profession: Ex-Trade Prince, liar, cheat, scam-artist, con-man, fruit vendor, seller of artifacts to the highest bidder and Chief Executive Officer of the Kezan East Undermine Company.
Physical Description: Scrawny and short like all goblins. Well groomed hair has receded from his forehead, retreating like a forest systematically being cleared by the beautiful machinery of his people.
Personality Description: His rap sheet will here serve us best: Racketeering, price fixing, collusion, market adjustment, insider trading, murder, manslaughter, goblinslaughter, forgery, property theft, property damage, intellectual property theft, intellectual property damage, and loitering.
General Notes: Nizzan will sell anything to anyone at any time. He has no prejudices except against people who waste his time. As every goblin babe knows, time is money (friend). He has a keen business acumen and a fine sense for forgery. He is more fraud than true businessman, however, having lied and cheated his way through cleverness into the upper echelon of goblin society and plummeted back down again at the height of his career.
Unusual Notes: Was arrested and put on trial by the Goblin Trade Commission after the Great Linen Crash. Held in prison on Kezan until the island was attacked by Deathwing and escaped on a converted pleasure barge named the Kraken. Was tracked by the GTC commandant Kruzo and his aide Man Friday to an uncharted island near the Maelstrom. Subsequently stole their ship, the Antitrust and, after wrecking it off Kalimdor, washed up in Azshara.
Secrets: None. That lying (truthful) rat Sly Screed has outed everything about Nizzan there is to know and published it in the Gadgetzan Gazette.
History: Growing up as one of Gadgetzan's many orphans, Nizzan found work early as a transport boy for a fruit vendor there. He and the vendor's daughter, Azzah, fell in goblin-love and planned to abscond with her father's money. However, something went wrong the night of the robbery and she never showed after the money was secure. He fled to Undermine where he used the cash to create a new identity and enroll in the Undermine School of Archaeology.
After graduating with a falsified degree, Nizzan went on to put together one of the most infamous mercenary archaeological teams in the history of Tanaris. He sold artifacts to the highest bidder for nearly twelve years, amassing a personal fortune at the cost of the Dwarven Senate of Ironforge and other such buyers. With this money, he established the Kezan East Undermine Company and eventually forged papers stating that he had purchased the rank of Trade Prince.
Selling weapons to both sides of the conflict in the Second War and generally performing unethical business deals, Nizzan was eventually caught when he lost the money of a powerful Gadgetzanian investor in the Great Linen Crash last Orktember. He attempted to escape before the hammer came down, but he was betrayed by someone within the Company. He was taken in irons to Kezan.
Once there, he was tried by Chief Investigator Frenk Zappar and found guilty of all the charges previously mentioned. He was held in the deepest portions of Undermine's High Security Debtor's Jail while his board of directors and faithful second-in-command the disgraced noble-elf Oranor Sunstar scrambled to put together a bribe.
Instead, Nizzan requested a ship be outfitted in secret on the islands off of Silvermoon. This was the pleasure barge on which he made good his escape, which docked at Kezan in the days just following his parole hearings while he was allowed free roam of the harbor. When the chaos of the catastrophe began he saw it as an opportunity to escape. He and Captain Riker (a hired hand and thoroughly untrustworthy goblin) set off.
They were forced to put in at a small island (which the crew named Riker's Island for the captain) to weather the massive tidal forces following the destruction of Kezan. They were caught by a rogue GTC ship, the Antitrust but they cleverly distracted the crew and stole aboard after their own ship was scuttled.
Nizzan currently is a homeless drifter with a large bankroll provided by the Silvermoon banks (which Oranor has been in contact with) hoping to rebuild the company of his former glory. And hey, with the GTC gone, there's no one stopping him from calling himself prince again...
Current Going-On (if any): Attempting to rebuild the Kezan East Undermine Company.
