On Amozare, Bernoulli Island, Prince Gespucci is the beginning and ending of commerce. However, no one man, not even the Prince, can oversee every aspect of finance. Thus his Minister of Trade, Atolino Bernoulli oversees the day to day domestic enterprise of Amozare with the aid of a trusted council of close family.
While every Consorzio in Amozare must register their trading licenses through the Bernoulli family, for most of them, the connection begins and ends with their yearly dues to the Prince's coffers. Not so Barzetti Enterprises. In secret, they are patronized by the Bernoulli family itself, specifically Roberto Biancardi, a cousin, by marriage, to the Prince, and member of Atolino Bernoulli's Trade Council. However, this secret connection into the Palace itself does not set Barzetti Enterprises on as firm a footing as it usually would, for Atolino and Roberto are fierce enemies. Roberto was once seen as the likely man to succeed the previous Minister of Finance, and Atolino only took the position through extensive conniving.
Though Roberto is too highly connected to be destroyed by Atolino, he gets as little support from the family as the current Minister of Trade can manage. If Roberto's influence were to ever wane at court, Atolino would take great pleasure in dismantling Barzetti Enterprises as a matter of spite. Thus, scrutiny from the Bernoulli family is always heavy on Barzetti Enterprises. If they were to ever do anything to embarrass or dishonor their patron, their own days would be numbered.
Critical Weakness: Their own success is tied to the fortunes of their highly placed patron, Roberto Biancardi
