Kensidan, a very scheming individual, convinced his father that at first they should make no move against Deudermont in fighting against the Host Tower. Later, when Deudermont had won and was elected governor, Kensidan made an agreement with Bregan D'aerthe for assistance, and his father fomented the fury of the people against the governor for a famine that plagued the city.
Finally, Rethnor died, probably helped along by Kensidan. Kensidan started a open revolt that took control of Luskan and Kensidan himself killed Deudermont. Thus Luskan became, as Kensidan had always wanted, a true free port where it was possible buy all kind of tools, including slaves and drugs.
