A rogue modron, Root-of-Nine is a master merchant who has begun to manipulate the laws of commerce to its benefit. It has moved most of its dealings away from its former base in Automata, although still holding considerable infulience in the gate-town. Root-of-Nine now bases itself in Sigil, though few of its actual business dealings are actually in the Cage. It is one of the richest of all Merkhants, and many believe it plans to make a play for leadership of the plane-spanning sect in the near future.


Root-of-Nine owns the Merkhant Warehouse

in the Market Ward, which was recently constructed on the former site of the Smoking Hammer Inn. Its extended trading empire allows it to sell rare and unique items that cannot be found elsewhere in Sigil.
