Petyr Baelish, also known as Littlefinger, is King Robert's Master of Coin and a very smooth operator indeed.
Petyr Baelish originally came from a very small and insignificant noble house sworn to House Arryn, but his ambition and "wizardry" with money has helped him rise to power and wealth. He grew up alongside Catelyn Tully (now Stark) and her siblings. When he was young he was quite a bit in love with Catelyn, who had been promised to Ned Stark's brother, and therefore decided to duel him for her hand. He says that he has a scar from the fight to this day. He sits at the King's Council of Small Matters, in King's Landing. He also owns several brothels there that make him a lot of money. He thinks of them as a much safer investment than export and import, as whores do not tend to sink.
