The Latparron Trading Company is a small but long-standing company in the town of Poroson. At the time of Holo and Lawrence's arrival, the company was on its forty-ninth master. Though a devout follower of the Church, this master nevertheless attempted to swindle Lawrence with a set of rigged scales. Holo saw through the deception, and in exchange for not being prosecuted, the master allowed Lawrence to buy arms on credit. However, he craftily withheld mention of a recent crash in the arms market and then transferred the debt to the Remerio Trading Company. The clever move would nearly force Lawrence into bankruptcy.
