Targovi, Agent Of The Terran Empire
The title, David Falkayn: Star Trader, describes van Rijn's protege, David Falkayn.
The title, The Trouble Twisters, describes van Rijn's trade pioneer crew led by Falkayn.
Agent Of The Terran Empire describes Dominic Flandry.
Van Rijn and Falkayn are merchants whereas Flandry is an intelligence agent in a later historical period. The "Man Who Counts" motivates others whereas the "Trouble Twisters" solve practical problems.
Targovi combines the roles of merchant and intelligence agent. Both Flandry and Targovi play The Game Of Empire.
On Daedalus, Targovi sells:
artifacts made by Tigeries and Seafolk on Imhotep;
Imhotepan natural products, including food edible by Terrans and Starkadians.
We will have more posts about Targovi.
