There isn't too much to say about how the Merchant gets his money. The money he has seems to be gotten through trade routes and the military protection of them. The Merchant dresses in the latest fashions and likes to put forth the appearance of being rich. In actual fact, he is quite in debt. The Merchant simply spends more than he has.
