Grogan makes his living as a professional second, standing in for weak-kneed Core World aristocrats who find themselves facing pistols at dawn or swordplay at Kaytree Pond after one too many glasses of shimmer wine. More often than not, however, his involvement is part of some behind-the-curtain court intrigue that usually ends with one less chess piece on the board – metaphorically speaking.
That’s his day job.
When he’s not stabbing aristocrats for fun and profit, he’s acting as a triggerman and retrieval specialist for a Core World crime syndicate masquerading as a legitimate business. He walks into a nightclub and doesn’t pay for his drinks. He beds high-ranking women, single or otherwise attached. Nobody’s going to call him on it. Nobody can afford to.
He keeps his collars starched and his pistols loaded.
