Mant Imogast is a master mason, originally from the city of Serin in the south. He was born and raised there, and had a very successful Masonry business in the city. Both of his sons were apprenticed into his craft under his watchful eye, and followed in his footsteps. He planned on splitting his business between his sons when he became too old to do the work himself. His eldest son Bront was tired of the city life though, and made an agreement with his brother Cant to take a large portion of the liquid assets and a few sets of master's tools in exchange for retaining all of the business in Serin. Bront decided he didn't like living amongst so many people, and while enjoying a mug of ale with one of their suppliers, Robert Oceltine, he heard that a small group of people were planning on beginning a new settlement in an empty but ideal area to the north.
Mant was sad to see his son go, but proud to see him seeking to stand on his own. Cant also agreed, so he stayed on with their father as Bront packed up and headed north. The business had a slight downturn in the following months but skilled labor is always needed, and they recovered easily in time.
Ten years later Mant decided he had worked enough, and that Cant had the experience to handle it on his own. He stepped back from the business and enjoyed the fruits of his labor. A few more years passed, and Cant decided to marry. Mant celebrated with his son, and then gave them his home as a wedding present. It had been almost 15 years since he had seen Bront, who was busy building up Havenford, and he decided to move to Havenford for a while and visit. After the wedding, he and his wife joined a trade caravan headed north.
When Mant and his wife Carla arrived in Havenford it was expanding at a steady rate. Bront had built a business that couldn't even keep up with the growth of Havenford, and he was turning away jobs left and right. Mant was proud, and tired, but he couldn't say no to his eldest son. After they had a happy reunion, Mant agreed to join his son's business as an administrator and a teacher. Bront had taken on a few apprentices as well as his son, and barely had the time to teach them the trade. Mant began to teach them on the smaller jobs, and take care of the books and dealings while Bront continued to focus on the work. He also took the time to go to the Guild meetings, as he found the idea fascinating. He has been a welcome addition to the community.
