A noted sommelier, Derla Pidys sells wine gathered from a breathtaking range of worlds: Orto Plutonia, Naboo, the Forest Moon of Endor and many others. It’s a profession that has brought her into contact with Canto Bight business owners such as Ubailla Gheal, as well as patrons such as the mysterious Grammus sisters.
Her full name and title are a mouthful: Contessa Alissyndrex delga Cantonica Provincion. Fortunately, she’s content with being addressed more simply as the Countess of Canto Bight. The Countess – whose husband is rarely seen in public -- sits atop the resort city’s social ranks and owns a sizable share of many of its business operations.
A private investigator based in Canto Bight’s Old City, Neepers Panpick knows more than anyone about what the resort city’s power brokers are up to – and what they want to keep secret. While not a member of Canto Bight’s elite, Panpick dresses well to keep from attracting notice when his job forces him to rub elbows with the super-rich.
At the heart of Canto Bight sits the Canto Casino and Racetrack. A fathier racetrack occupies the center of the complex, surrounded by game rooms, restaurants, cabarets and luxury hotels. Fortunes in Cantocoins are won and lost nightly at the casino, a place of soaring dreams and crashing disappointments.
