Edrea Solon    NPCs  (Major)   (Mystical)

At first glance, Edrea seems to be a very nice lady.  She seems to be sensible and kind, the perfect matron for an orphanage.  But, of course, that is all merely an act.

Kane, the Sorrow of Justice    NPCs  (Minor)   (Criminal/Espionage)

"There are ideas that are so fundamental that without them, civilization could not exist.  The most inviolate, the most important, is justice.  If men do not hold rigorously to what is just, then society cannot live.  I will not allow those who would ignore something so vital simply because it does not suit them to persist in doing so."

Hisa, the Sorrow of Vengeance    NPCs  (Minor)   (Criminal/Espionage)

There are some people who just lay down and die if someone hurts them.  Some people forgive those who hurt him.  And some… well, some decide to punish the people who hurt them.  Me?  Not even death can stop me from having my revenge.  Not my death, not his death.  They’ll all pay.

Order of the Moonbeard

       By: valadaar

Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.

They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.

They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.

They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.

They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.

Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.

Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.

The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
