Lord Xellicles Pinos-Revina is an extremely wealthy trader with millions of gold at his disposal. He hired the Lord Vanech's Building Commission in the year 3E 358 to a contract to improve the road between Gideon and Black Marsh. Xellicles paid their commission a hefty amount of gold ranging in the several million septims. Xellicles wanted the trade routes to be repaired in any way possible to keep his goods from spoiling because of the lengthy trip between the two locations. He died before the Commission was able to complete the contract.
