The Jade Regent
Madam Kawaoh is the owner of Madam K’s Perfumery in the Jade Quarter of the city of Kalsgard, in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings. Ostensibly, she is a merchant and great expert in perfumes, but her premises hide a secret shop and business: Madam Kawaoh collects items from the continent of Tian Xia that travellers from those lands are forced to sell as they enter the world of Avistan. She then offers the original owners first choice at repurchasing these items, often heirlooms, once they have better gained their feet in their new home. Her price need not be purely gold, for Madam Kawaoh understands the value of favours and services, which she may take in part-payment.
