Baron Gilbert is middle aged and rotund, living well off the bounties of his estate. He likes to dress in flamboyant outfits, often of outrageous colours. He has a twirly moustache and favours a wide-brimmed hat. Gilbert is a shrewd businessman and deals well with the Guild merchants who choose to come as far as his estates. He has a couple of very good associates, or partners in the Guild who continue to make the extra trip to his port of Zaneth to collect the farm produce he sells.
