The oldest profession in the world is not prostitution it is banking. And Breton Woods comes from a long, ancient line of bankers. His family was instrumental in starting the very first banking institution and note driven monetary system in the world. Breton Woods can trace his family lineage back to ancient Babylon where the first family patriarch sat on the board of the world’s very first bank. 6000 years have passed since that event and Breton Woods’s family history includes Pharaohs, kings, and other dynastic rulers who were able to adapt into businessmen and maintain their rule as bankers even as the world changed and their dynasties collapsed around them.
As head of the Banker’s Guild, Breton Woods is one of the most powerful men on the planet. The money of every banking institution in the world connects to his privately owned Central Bank of New Frontier in some way, shape or form. And Breton Woods and his family have been able to maintain their power and wealth since the beginning of civilization by adhering to one simple edict: Keep the world in debt.
Breton Woods is second in power only to Lord Bane because he lacks the appetite for physical violence Lord Bane possesses, and he lacks the sheer muscle to influence others to betray Lord Bane.
Checks & Balances: He knows how to crash the stock market in less than 24 hours, which could bring potential ruin to the other gods.
Legacy: Breton Woods wants to pass the modern-day banking precepts of the money-multiplier effect, fractional-reserve banking, and debt-based fiat money system, on to the next generation of bankers and financiers.
