Background Notes:
Birthplace: Romii

Gaius "the Guy" Marcus is an Associate Member of House Aurellius. He brokers cargo, which means that he can buy your cargo on behalf of his House (or another one) and arrange to have it shipped deeper into the Empire by Romulan freighters, and he has a cargo pod (or two) full of cargo available for export. Humans who visit Abraxas call him "the Guy to Go See" since he probably handles half of the total cargo in and out of Abraxas.

You can assume that his price is the "baseline" and you might (or might not) be able to find somebody to pay more or charge less, but you can always get a deal from Gaius. Gaius is reasonably honest but a sharp dealer. If he really, really wants your cargo, heís not above doing something to get it, whether thatís pressuring other brokers (there are five or six others, not to mention a dozen Romulan and Orion traders with cargoes to sell) to leave you alone or causing trouble for you with the local police or Tal Diann agents.
