Nobody met Geldahar directly, but he is a fat, sort-of-cross-eyed fur dealer in Boktor who doubled as a Drasnian intelligence agent and could get Yarblek into the palace to see Queen Porenn.

"Why don't you take a shipment of furs and go to Boktor? While you're trying to sell Geldahar the furs, tell him that the salmon run is late this year."

"I'm sure he'll be fascinated to hear that."

"It's a code-word," Silk explained with exaggerated patience. "As soon as you say that, he'll see to it that you get into the palace to see Queen Porenn." -- Enchanters' End Game
