Lord Mayor Haldmeer Grobaras of Magnimar became mayor of Magnimar in 4700. Undisputedly the most politically powerful man in Magnimar, he is a paunchy, self-serving politico more concerned with his own comforts than the needs of the underprivileged he hears so much about. Having managed Magnimar for the last decade, Grobaras handles the immediate needs of the city, indifferently settling matters relating to the distribution of city funds, use of the city watch, and the concerns of countless citizen’s groups, all while welcoming bribery and lavish gifts. Although the finest Chelish fashions and his numerous chins make the lord-mayor’s self-indulgent foppishness blatantly apparent, they hide a silver tongue and the private wealth to give nearly any promise form. Though his station would have him uphold the mandates of the Council of Ushers, he often ignores such duties, and is much more attentive to whether or not his personal declarations are enforced. Grobaras’s mandates are rare, and sometimes prove grossly biased or potentially damaging to the city, even when the Council of Ushers manages to blunt the self-serving or otherwise questionable aspects before they are passed.
