Mammon is of a servant race called the Kind People. He was despised by his people because of his unnatural ambition. He eventually rose to mastery, got rid of empathy and emotion to only keep his ambition. He then proceeded to kill all his friends, family and his entire clan, alledgedly to protect his hoard. He decorated his treasure fortress with reminders of this familicide, the pieces of silver with which he paid the murderers of his kin are serving as keys to his inner sanctum, and are at the same time revered by the Priests of the Count.
He is called a Grand Dragon because servant races are inherently immortal and he continued to grow further. Also, he is a hoarder, collecting things that have worth to him. He has thus filled his inner sanctum in Yre with enough gold to bathe in, or at least just walk on top.
Mammon controls the Bank of the Grand Dragon, which Mottom has commissioned to help maintain the splendor of the Palace of Radiance. His enterprizes are possibly operating all over throne, as well as on his own worlds - for an example, the only railway that operates on throne is the Grand Dragon Bank Rail Company, circling Ashton.
As of late, he seems to not enjoy his wealth anymore. but he is still committed to counting it all, even as it is not important to him anymore. It's just so much. He is also blind ("my eyes aren't what they used to be") and heavily regrets having killed his family, as he has found out that he still needed them. While he claims that he deserves death, he welcomes his would-be-slayers, appaearently allowing them to stick their swords into his skin - but he is by now too big to be killed this way.
- Mammon is the primary antagonist of Book 3.
- In the March 2016 Patreon hangout, ABBADON mentioned that if Pryan Sor had delivered the bones to Mammon, Mammon would have monotonously accepted them and moved on so long as the proper paperwork was included.
