Sugar Smuggler

Sugar smugglers, or "Liriabu", is a particular profession that only shows up in Hajema , because it's the only place where there's sugar valuable enough to steal.   There are some concerns that the bacteria the mold consumes would actually harm other biospheres if introduced. This is actually not a thing (the bacteria is present in most lower spheres, and there are other conditions that allow Sugar Mold to grow where it does), but it has been an effective idea in limiting the trade of sugar mold, and has allowed the sugar moguls to shut down all trade of Sugar Mold outside of their own official, carefully regulated channels.   When people got tired of paying the inflated prices of the unusual sugar, the career of smuggler was born. It's not a particularly well organized career, with each smuggler generally working with a small group of allies to do their jobs. They tend to be friendly toward each other, but like every illicit career, there are those who might attempt to make their own monopoly.



A willingness to skirt the law, a history of travel, knowledge of back routes, and a good dentist.
