Dying of the Light
A greedy caravan-master
Illiagan is the caravan-master that hired Jin and later on Mara.
He is a very greedy, but not entirely stupid man.
After the caravan was apprehended by the Stonefast border patrol, as far as anyone knows, Illiagan and the remaining caravaneers were stripped of their contraband and possessions and sent back down the mountain, alive, due to Amit’s silver tongue.
