Brand was administrator of trade for Teirm and responsible for keeping the town's shipping records.
In Eragon Brom sought him out and attempted to view the shipping records. This process of negotiation ended with Brom describing him as "the worst sort of bureaucrat" to Eragon after Brand refused to allow him to look at the shipping records. Brom stated that Brand followed every regulation but was capable of making his own, even turning down substantial bribes.
