The Pleasure-dome of Sshenssu Salessh

Sshenssu Salessh is a Hssu merchant whose focus is in providing services to humans. His Pleasure Dome provides a mix of services that serve the hedonistic desires of humans. His Pleasure Dome is a large building on the edge of the plaza, and it offers three kinds of services: gambling in the casino, a mix of alcohol and recreational drugs (such as ssharu and black lotus) in the bar, and a wide variety of erotic services in the brothel. Salessh is cold and alien, has trouble telling apart individual humans (or even understanding the difference between males and females), and has no concern for human morality or inhibitions, or their value as more than resources for profit. He isn't malicious— he just doesn't really see humans as really equal to Hssu.
