BARD PAPER: DANI4400
Erik Ronald Dimling
Age 36 in 1201
by Alvin Plummer
Occupation: Organlegger / Crime Lord
Erik was born on Rethe in the Spinward Marches, though he now lives on Whanga/Regina/Spinward Marches.
He always hungered to `make it big', and get out of his cronically depressed megalopolis. Dimling
started out as a small-time organ dealer, arranging the illegal sale of blood and kidneys. Eventually
took over the business: developed and extended "Organ harvesting" to target the ill, street people
and especially untended children (who's organs go for the highest prices on the black market)
After branching into less-than-reputable hospitals, he's now believed to operate a "medical testing
centre" - with sentients as testing subjects - somewhere in Uthe/Gvurrdon: the subsector
governor's Justice Commission suspect's Orsesokh/Uthe/Gvurrdon (A000874-F),
the capital of the coreward Thonengling Raghz
("Thoengling Empire" in the local Vargr dialect)
Currently, Mr. Dimling is attempting to recify his only noticable failure: his every attempt to take over
Whanga for his own purposes has been repeatedly countered by the local democartically-elected
Resident (the local nobility he has in his pocket). He came close to staging a favourable coup, but
something went wrong, and he had to back off or face the wrath of the Regent himself. The Regent just
happens to be subsector Duke, and is not pleased with how Dimling corrupted the local Nobility.
Heavy-set, but with hard muscle underneath the flab. Red-brown skin tone, crew-cut brown hair,
and hazel eyes are set on a brick of a head. Dresses *very* well, but still looks and moves like a
The strong, silent type. Carefully plans every move, then does whatever it takes to see it through.
Has the ability to see "The big picture", and how to profit from it. He's also rather lucky (a +3 on
every difficult or crucial task), which comes in ha ndy in his business.
Most of his family is involved in his operations in one way or another, and form the nucleous of his
command structure. The people that he really trusts, though, are his three clones. Equipped with
regularily updated copies of his personality, they are his top aides, and reside on Efate, Menorb, and
Regina. He himself prefers to remain on Whanga.
A large web of medical and criminal contacts. About 2.4 GCr, in laundered accounts.
Several regal estates on Menorb, Efate, Whanga, Ruie and Regina (many bought from recently
impoverished nobles. His very own island chain on Whanga,
illegal biotech and prostitution operations throughout Regina subsector
and several small legitimate biotech firms on Efate.
