Private life

Rather wealthy due to fortunate investments, Oliver Murtogg owns a mansion near Port George that is often criticised by locals, who consider it a modernist monstrosity. He is also co-owner of a local bus company. Little is known about his private life; apparently Murtogg is unmarried, but he is regularly seen in the company of a young Latin-American man who is rumoured to have been adopted by Murtogg as his son.
