The Trade Island of Kaplin
A short human woman with her hair pulled back in a bun and a generally concerned look. She wears a work shirt and a pair of overalls. She is covered with dirt for undiscernible reasons.
Camille was a workwoman from a large family, and was raised to respect anybody who worked hard and nobody who didn’t. When a noble who was born in her home of Port Yvann, but whose family, the Inezes, came from Althaea, managed to become Mayor without working a day in his life, she took offense. She took even more offense when said noble attempted to raise labor demands without raising pay, welfare, or benefits. She began to lead a group in the People’s Assembly dedicated to vetoing unfair labor laws and allowing people to survive, if not live comfortably, on four days work a week, a quota which was easily filling the necessary trade amounts. After filing an investigation, she discovered that the Mayor had been attempting to unfairly raise production in order to line his own pockets with the unreported excess and use the money to ensure his continued over-representation in future campaigns. When the information got out his reputation was devastated, he was no longer able to get any decisions to pass in the City Court or the People’s Assembly, and Camille was asked to run in the election to replace him on grounds of corruption. She accepted, and ran against another member of the Inez noble family, winning by a landslide and being reelected for the next term. She is presently one year in to her third term as Mayor, and has been instituting public works to combat wage differences between workers and shopkeepers, and shopkeepers and the nobility. She has four children, and a husband who works four days in Althaea as a scribe and spends about on and a half days at home per week. Though her work as mayor pays her a good stipend, she donates the entire amount to public works and works with her blacksmith father for the money that she lives on.
