|<< Chief of Elf Village||Chiepoo||Childerich >>|
Chiepoo made a name for himself when he ran away from his hometown on Nay to accomplish his goal of becoming the greatest merchant in the world. Some viewed him as a bad example, and made sure their kids didn't grow up to become like him. Others admired his ambitiousness.
His travels took him to Razril, where he was just a small-time merchant, until he snuck onto the exile ship of Hero IV and his comrades, in hope of journeying the world even more. He ended up fighting the Kooluk under Hero IV, while learning more about the world. He was shocked upon a random visit to his hometown, that he had already become famous, even though he hadn't come close to accomplishing his goal.
After the war, however, he put his plan into high gear, and set up shop on the Deserted Island, which he soon took to calling "Chiepoo Island", to the confusion of some of its residents. His trade soon grew, and he proved a master of acquiring products that would sell, and securing the only trade route from the Island Nations to Kooluk, along with his fellow kobold merchants, Champo, Nalkul, and Noah.
A bitter rivalry developed between the Chiepoo Trading Co, and the other major Island Nations trading company, known only as 'X & Co.' Each company would hire mercenaries through the Quest Guild in Middleport to try and best the other in supply, marketing, and even sabotage. - KoRnholio
