Shianna : Jungle-predator stuck in the big city, Shianna has spent time as a pit fighter and hired hand when not roaming the nearby woodlands hunting and crafting clothing and trinkets that attract interest from the city-folk. As one would expect, her wild spirit often puts her at odds with the social expectations of a big city, and has landed her in trouble many times. She used to work for the Thieve’s Guild and their ilk, but has recently aligned herself with the Hollands instead, hoping for a better mutual fit.
Benton “Benny” Buntz : Member of Fagin’s Lane Gang. This gang of orphaned kids has seen its fortunes turn for the better as of late, as the turmoil in town has provided them with ample work for multiple factions ( Thieve’s Guild, The Hollands). The kids were able to purchase the plot of land hosting the building they have been squatting in at auction, and can even think about building a proper shelter for themselves now. They need to carefully balance the work they do for multiple antagonistic factions to not lose their new-found wealth.

Drisby Cardoon : Town fence and member of the Thieve’s Guild. Operated a pawn shop in town while working on secret weaponised concoctions in his secret basement laboratory. Has orchestrated an attack on the Hollands, which was turned back on the Thieve’s Guild with gusto. Now picking up the pieces that are left, scrambling to buy himself and the Thieve’s Guild some breathing room after brokering a flaky (see “Historic treaty”) truce with the Hollands.
Count Jared Els’Velcasa : Proprietor of the Hoffstead Inn, the Count has recently added to his reputation as a fierce duelist not to be trifled with. As an independent operator, he has attracted the attention of both the Thieve’s Guild and the Hollands. He likes to act as a neutral ally to both, but mostly likes to be in the good graces of the faction currently in a position of power.
