Bellum Caeli Flagrantis
Black Horse Mercenaries
This disreputable band consists of about twenty-five men commanded by Renard Woodsman (now deceased), a leader who stays at his camp is in the mountains south of Gate Pass. The bounty hunters have been hired to capture magic-users in the city as part of Ragesia’s pre-invasion activities. Renard’s second-incommand, Kathor Danava, has been given men and supplies to carry out the abductions within the walls.
Most citizens look upon the bounty hunters in the city as a benevolent defense force helping a beleaguered city guard in recent months. The city has experienced some level of unrest ever since the death of Emperor Drakus Coaltongue, and the bounty hunters’ presence has been helpful in many disturbances. This has largely been fostered by Kathor’s honorable approach to handling strife, and even the city guard, normally suspicious of bounty hunters, has a favorable opinion of them.
All Black Horse members wear an armband — red, with a black horse head and letters in a foreign language.
