Name: Pormqual



Race: human,


Further Info: High Fist of Seven Cities.  Pormqual, High Fist of the Seven Cities, in Aren - (DG, Dramatis Personae)

Physical Description

The man beside him was probably High Fist Pormqual, tall, wiry, slope-shouldered and wearing clothes that would beggar a king, his pale hands skittering across the top of the battlement like trapped birds." - (DG, UK mmpb, p.851)


"Gods below, the High Fist can't even ride." - (DG, UK mmpb, p.881)

"As far as I have been able to determine,' Duiker said, 'he does not govern at all. Most edicts are issued by the man (Mallick Rel) you - Bult- just expelled from this council. There are a host of others behind the curtain, mostly nobleborn wealthy merchants.  They are the ones primarily for the cuts in duty taxation on imported goods, and the corresponding increases in local taxes on production and exports - with exemptions, of course, in whatever export themselves are engaged in. The Imperial occupation is managed by Malazan merchants, a situation unchanged since Pormqual assumed the title of High Fist four years ago.

Bult asked, 'Who was the High Fist before him?'

'Cartheron Crust, who drowned one night in Aren Harbour.'" - (DG, UK mmpb, p.79-80)


"The High Fist holds his army in Aren.  More, he holds the entire Seven Cities Fleet as well.  Nether has moved in months.  He has had countless opportunities to despatch either force to our aid.  Tell me Captain, in your family's hunting estates, have you ever seen a door caught in lantern light? How it stands, frozen, unable to do anything.  The High Fist Pormqual is that deer." - - Bult (DG UK mmpb. p.  ) 

High Fist Pormqual moved half of Aren's treasury on the Ragstopper, leaving Aren.  (NEEDS REFERENCES)


"A war chief's tulwar flashed behind the High Fist, lifted the man's head clean from his shoulders and sent it spinning." - (DG, UK mmpb, p.887)
