Pier Vir Cotto
On the verge of being morbidly obese, active and intelligent eyes, short blond hair, wears tight green tunics.
Vir Cotto used to be a skinny young intellectual at the Collegium who was obsessed with raising the level of intellectual discussion around him. Now days as a councilman of T’Jinnamin he is no longer skinny. His one vice is that of a gourmand; not a gourmet who eats the finest things, but a gourmand who just eats.
Cotto is one of the leading advocates for building schools and academies in T’Jinnamin to educate the populace and to acquire and restore knowledge about pre Unity culture. He is an opponent of the arena because he sees it as ‘bread and circuses’ to keep the populace dull and distracted; not to mention make the wealthy even richer at the expense of the arena fighters and patrons. Cotto has great popular support in the council but is opposed by many of the other councilmen and women who are in the service of the crime bosses and the arena merchants.
