Zorik is an old Sattazin fisherman and merchant, and owner of a vast fishing fleet that operates its home base out of the little Sattazin fishing village of Mar'ik'tan on the east coast of the main continent. His fishing fleet consists of two primary components: The fishing boats that bring in the catch, and a fleet of cargo ships that bring supplies to the boats, and take back the large hauls of fish that they catch, allowing him to save money on fuel, while also keeping his ships at sea much longer, allowing them to take in much greater harvests at a greatly reduced cost to him. And, for the right price, he is also willing to ferry passengers from his home base in Mar'ik'tan to any one of several resupply bases located along the western shore of the eastern continent.
