Steel, Lilacs, and Penumbra (Spellbound Kingdoms)
The Merchants Below
Thieves and spell smugglers. Rivals to the Cutters.
The second powerful guild in the World Below in Rithaign. The Merchants are the shadow arm of the (somewhat) more respectable Guild of Factors, Insurers, and Beggars. By treaty, they control the area east of the Processional (the main N-S road), including the lucrative dock trade.
Their leader is Ginny “Wheelock” Siddal, known to be spellbound and deadly with a pistol, rumored to be a deserter from the East Fire war.
