I love the smell of commerce in the morning.
— Captain Gnashblade
As a soldier of the High Legions, Gnashblade first came to Lion's Arch at the age of 20 as part of an Ash Legion operation to extort the people of the city under the banner of the Black Lion Trading Company. Gnashblade was by all accounts a dependable soldier who never disobeyed orders—until that day. When he raised concerns with his legionnaire, Aria Gnashfang, believing that attempting to intimidate the pirates of Lion's Arch would not be fruitful, the disagreement led to a fight and Gnashfang was killed. The next day, the Black Lion Trading Company was established in earnest.
