Essendor is the founder of the Imperium Argentum, and one of the original players on the server.
As well as for creating the IA, Essendor is quite infamous for his hard to sink merchantman model called the "Beluga" for its resemblance to a whale.
Essendor was conscripted into the Silver Empire early on in the server's days. He was surrounded by warships and forced to join the SE. Despite this, he eventually worked his way up to Director, at which point the Trade War took place. Tired of Capal Jack's war antics,and in search of a peaceful environment in which to trade, he and most members of the SE broke off into the IA.
