Gavashaw was to be assassinated (by order of Makkek, who was in possession of Szeth's Oathstone at the time), but the method was up to Szeth. He picked one that would not require killing the man's guards. Still, when Szeth arrived to do so, Gavashaw had already been killed.
He'd made his home in a large mansion on the eastern side of town. It belonged to the provincial landlord; Gavashaw had his favor. (The landlord had heard of Makkek and his quick rise to prominence in the underground. Supporting a rival was a good way to create an early check on Makkek's power.)
The roof of the mansion was long and flat, sloped gently eastward - an unnecessary feature in a lait.
A small rock dome covers a lower portion of the mansion.
