“Well, feuds or not, what I do know about the wealthy members of society is that they tend to share social circles. Kebbran is the capital and one of the larger business centres. I dealt with a lot of business folks, actually. It’s not a stretch to think they could have met at some big social event, taken an interest and gotten to know each other more later.”

The search finished and Vora perused the findings. Nothing that matched. “He looks free from any legal issues, at those that would have hit the press.” Vora cast a mischievous look at Johann. “But if we’re super concerned, we could always call Torno and ask him to do a background check given he still works for the High Court.” She was entirely joking. While convenient, she intended to never ask Torno Hass for anything ever.

“Yeah, and while we’ve got him on the phone I’m sure we could ask him for free room and board in a little concrete box too,” Johann quipped. Hass actually did once offer to put Vora up in the family estate once.

He kept thinking on what else to ask. “You already went over other family,” he thought aloud. “Any hint on what he does when he’s not being a Captain of Industry? These types always have big charitable causes and things like that, if only for tax reasons.” Sometimes they were just for good PR, but other times they could be a window into what the benefactor was passionate about.

Vora smiled. “Good call, let’s see what I can find in the society pages.”

Her smiled faded ever so slightly as the new search results popped up. “Donates heavily to addiction based charities- no surprise there, knowing what we know about my mother-, and …”-her smile returned more fully-“he seems to support a lot of art based organizations, both visual and performance arts. And he has apparently an extensive art collection.” She shifted her gaze to Johann and grinned. “I wonder if he plays music too.” Was it too much to hope that they had something in common beyond the perils of addiction?

“Could be. It would actually explain a lot, if you think about it.” He laughed slightly. “‘I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.’” Keiro Roden’s father was clearly in the ‘commerce and agriculture’ business, so it was very possible he was planning to be in any of the later ones.

That actually prompted another question. “Any information about his education? I would assume he has one, given how he addressed you.”
