A wealthy merchant farmer
Penda Ranulfsunu was a merchant farmer and landowner in the town of Dalsetter. He specialized in grains and similar crops. He was implicated in the spoiled grain crisis that led to the burning of the town of Dunross. Shortly after, he was found murdered in his home. No one was charged with the crime, but there were many suspects, including those that owed a debt to him, his competing grain merchants, and agents of Vali (one of whom he had unwittingly aided in the Dunross grain plot).
