Mythic Russia playtest: Giovanni
Giovanni the Italian
Giovanni the Italian merchant has dealt with both Mongols and Russians. He gets on famously with the Russians, especially the merchants of Novgorod, who give him a good deal. The Mongols are hunting him but have never been able to find him. Giovanni follows the teachings of Saint Stephen of Hungary and Saint Elmo. Recently Giovanni found his good friend Zandirio dying. Zandirio made him promise to look after his daughter; being an honourable man and in debt to Zandirio, he agreed. Now Giovanni is Lena's advisor and is trying to turn Zandivio's lands into the centre of his new trading empire. He is fabulously wealthy.
