Somenu Hermon was reputed to be the richest merchant in Musselia. He was born somewhere in Kanta, but fled the oppression of The Gurkish Empire. However, in Styria his supposed wealth reached legendary status.
When The Thousand Swords mercenary company put siege to Musselia, Hermon seemingly made a deal with Benna Murcatto to escape the city before the sack. However, to Monza's shock, Benna stabbed Hermon in the face and stole all his immense wealth. Monza and Benna buried this fortune thirty strides from their dead father’s ruined farmhouse.
