Personal history

Gavan grew up quite poor, having to work odd jobs to support his family.   At age 17, after his parents passed away having succumbed to illness due their inability to purchase medicine, Gavan resolved to climb his way out of poverty. Using knowledge he had gleaned from working as a bookkeeper for the local mining company, he found veins rich in minerals and bought the land with money had saved over the years as well as what he could raise after selling his old family home and possessions. Once he had gained ownership, Gavan immediately turned around, present mineral samples of his new land to the local mining company and sold the mining rights at a substantial profit.   Gavan moved on soon after, leaving behind both his childhood home as well as his family name.   For the next couple of years, Gavan moved from town to town, buying land and selling the it for the minerals that laid beneath. Never did he ever let on what his intentions were whenever he made a purchase. He would simply say that he was a farmer looking for a new crop field or traveler wanting a lot to build his home on.   Before long, he built up enough funds to start his own mining company. Two decades later and Gavan Weissman is now known as one of the richest men in Troth.
