The Dark Edge
The Shadows is a group that is spread out across the Redgull continent, but is most highly concentrated in shipment centers and the capitol of Hyloon. The Shadows specializes in all sorts of shady dealings, and has been known to be associated with the local drug trades, import/export control, information brokering, and much more. Their existence is well known (though their safehouses always remain hidden), but most of the time the law is in The Shadows pocket, either by bribes or blackmail – which is why they can flourish in a corrupt area like Redgull so easily.
The Shadows is run by a figure only known as ‘Jack.’ No one has ever claimed to have met Jack, and no one is sure what he even looks like. However, the face of the organization is Jack’s second in command, Luca Salvatore. One thing that many people notice is that Luca is somehow able to be at all The Shadows’ safehouses when needed, and even possibly at once.
The Shadows have contention with many other local gangs, and even control other seemingly competing factions indirectly. Their biggest rivalry is with Requiem, another faction specializing in information dealings. While Requiem believes that some information should be made publicly accessible, The Shadows wants complete control over it to influence how much gets traded and sold.
