- co-founded the city of Parolando with King John Lackland after aiding in the assassination of his former partner, Erik Bloodaxe
- built a massive steel riverboat, the Not For Hire, which was subsequently stolen by King John.
- built a second riverboat, better than the first, and chased Lackland all the way to the mouth of the River, at Virolando
