Hand of Vaalath

Hand.pngterritory: Corrias, with hostels in Kelsian and Stonescale
leader: Keeral Splinterfang
domains: assassination, (they also create weapons – sold by black marketeers)

Avala’s foremost organization of contract killers, the Hand maintains cordial ties with The Pirate Fleet, and keeps a liaison contact to The Thieves Guild.

Hand of Vaalath is an old, some would say ancient organization originally comprised of an elite group of dragonborn hunters in the old glory days of the Stonescale tribes. The group recruits sparingly and trains its own. Not exclusively dragonborn anymore, but its strong roots in Rael’Na made them a majority. Of late, however, elvenkind have been preferred for their superior stealth.

The Hand as an organization consists of seven primary operatives, including Keeral himself; seasoned veterans and top talent all. Lower level contracts are handled by any of several trained inductees. Contracts are accepted on a first pay, first served basis.

The seven top assassins are generally contracted by name, but each can decline jobs at will. If a contract is extended and declined, Keeral will attempt to arrange another suitable operative. He doesn’t like work being turned down outright, but allows his best some measure of autonomy. The low level work is assigned by Keeral, and gets done one way or another.


The seven:
-Keeral Splinterfang, dragonborn male.
Lets his wit and assertiveness do most of his work, & often talks with his mark first. He kills you after you know it’s coming and have accepted it.

-Mikha Dane, human male.
Older gent, accomplished actor and infiltrator. long game is his domain. was a member of the Guild before the Hand.

-Valaire Palemoon Thurston, half-ventan rogue, female. (liaison to the thieves guild)
Specializes in fast anonymous stealth kills, especially from distance. (Morika Emberfade offered Valaire’s true name, the women are long-time friends.)

-(Dimir) Farvale (of the Oerin tribe), ventan fighter, male.
Messy kills, doesn’t care much about discretion, he’s all about getting the job over and done. Highest bounty in the Empire.

-Markin Jennivir, human ranger, male.
Expert tracker and hunter, he’s the one you want if your quarry is MIA and needs to be KIA.

-Vierniss Kenndar, ombran sorcerer, female.
Interrogation/torture and painful death focused, magic user.

-Dythe Grimlight, tiefling warlock, male.
Master at killing other magic-users, ones who can normally sense another’s presence and protect themselves behind spells and rituals.
