A factor is an individual who represents a megacorp or noble in everything from brokerage to negotiation to industrial espionage. He is a hands-on troubleshooter, trade negotiator, and business agent.

These are the people who travel the worlds of a subsector, learning the intricacies of the economies of each world, and studying what the markets have to offer.

These are the people who act with the authority of their patron, directing trade, deploying resources, all to the profit of their employer.

These are the people who sanction trade wars, industrial espionage, even small scale wars, in order to advance their patron's interests.

They are troubleshooters, merchants, diplomats...

and they all have to start out somewhere.
