The founder of the Trader Guild.

From the play.net site: Perhaps the most (in)famous figure among Traders was Arnile Hanskwin, Syndic of the Trader's Guild. He was known for his desire to come up with more and more devious ways to combat the efforts of those who would steal from a trader. He was especially inventive when it came to designing new trap varieties.

Ratha Statue

From a statue outside the Ratha Trader's Guildhouse:
Poised with one foot propped on a pile of carved scrolls, the Human portrayed faces away from the guild entrance, his vacant marble gaze staring unerringly toward the distant horizon. Frozen in mid-raise, a golden telescope with cut crystal lenses rests in his immobile fingers while the sinuous cut of his elaborate greatcloak speaks of a strong but hidden breeze. Chiseled deep into the stone beneath his booted feet is a long declaration.

A stone statue reads:
Dedicated to Syndic Arnile Hanskwin, Founder of the modern Traders' Guild.
Scholar and merchant, he believed that had there been a unified Trade Guild, the Five Provinces would not have been conquered by the Dragon Priests in the confusion of differing local trade restrictions. An overarching Guild would allow the flow of goods while permitting open entry to any who wanted to join.

Syndic Hanskwin vowed that never again would one group of people control the trade of an entire continent. And none has.

Steelclaw Clan Bust

Found in the Crossing Room of the Kirm Morzindu Arena:

The features of a fleshy, bespectacled Human male greet the observer of the bust. Keen intelligence shows on the face, just above the charcoal mustache that some vandal has added. The inscription is, "Syndic Arnile Hanskwin, Founder of the Contract Trading System".
