He's the CFO of Dragon Industries and well known in high society for his considerable wealth and influence over private and public politics. A capable diplomat, he is celebrated for the relationships and organizational bridges he has helped to create and maintain over the years.
Balhaunt is rarely seen without a small cadre of bodyguards surrounding him and while some may call him paranoid, kinder criticism calls him careful.
Unbeknownst to all but a select few, Balhaunt is an ancient red dragon. He has made his lair within a regional headquarters building in the San Francisco megacity. His considerable assets make him one of the most wealthy beings on the planet and his private collection of artifacts, tomes and magik curio firmly establish him as the world's foremost curator of the arkane.
