Dawn of the Devil-Tigers
Midas, King of Paper, Coin, and Credit
Midas was young when the Primordial War ended but played a major role in the Aftershock War. It was during the Aftershock War that Midas came to become a crafter of great artifacts and wonders that surpassed the imaginations of the generations of Exalts that had come before him. It was also during this time that Midas conceived of the possibility that the Primordial, Ramethus, might destroy the Exalted host in such great droves that the structural functionality of the government they had created would break down. It was during this time that he created some of the mightiest artifacts that would be used to battle the errant Primordial as well as develop several methods for mortals to keep basic functions of protecting Creation intact.
It was the latter of these two developments that encompass one of his achievements that continues to impact Creation today, the Trade-Conferring Pattern. The Trade-Conferring Pattern is an enchantment weaved into the fabric of reality by Midas to allow specifically structured commercial transactions to keep the Wyld at bay.
