An Acquitor was a sanctioned position in the Kingdom of Lether for someone who worked as guide/factor when dealing with non-Letherii people.[1] The number of Acquitors in a region was strictly limited by treaty, and no merchant could enter non-Letherii lands without one.[2] Only seven served the entirety of the Tiste Edur lands, for example.[2] Merchants bid heavily on their services often contracting their exclusive service for a period of years.[2]

Acquitors were required to remain neutral and not to speak their own minds nor interfere with the aims of others.[3][4] They did not take part in any negotiations that might occur between their employer and their non-Letherii contacts.[5] They were expected to know every trail, old barrow ground, and holy site in their territory.[6] They were skilled at reading tracks.[7]
