Abbotir is the Lord of the Gold Court of the Thieves' Guild of Tai-tastigon, and thus one of the five top officials under the Sirdan Theocandi.[1]

He is Bane's foster-father; when Ishtier and Ganth Kendar mistress came down to Tai-tastigon from the Keep, he married her, not knowing that she was already pregnant.[2] Bane was raised as his son.

Theocandi took Bane as his apprentice six years prior to God Stalk to get Abbotir's support in that election,[3] and in the upcoming election in God Stalk, Abbotir is considered a dependable supporter of Theocandi again for the same reason.[4][5]
