Black Jaw

blackjaw.jpg
The Black Jaw is the criminal syndicate that runs most of the organized crime in the Duchy of Eldyrmoor. They are rumored to have their hands in all manner of trade from the lowest of the low; prostitution, drug smuggling, slavery, all the way up through owning many legitimate businesses as fronts.

They operate as a traditional thieves guild as well, and any unregulated thieves or solo workers who are caught using the night road without paying their taxes are never heard of again.

Rumors swirl around the leadership of the syndicate, but it is known that it is run by a Council of Nine, headed by an individual known only as Sliver.

Their symbol is a simple outline of a lower jaw drawn in unrelieved black, and it is commonly left on buildings with charcoal or other temporary substances as a means of communication.

Motto: “Black Jaws Bite Back!”
