Party of Scoundrels
The place is as dark as the name implies. Although relatively small, Shadowshore is perhaps the most notorious of Sasserine’s districts.
This strip of land nestled in the shadow of Champion’s District has long been a haven for thieves, thugs, and criminals of all kind. Generally, the only people who live here are those poor enough that their homes hold no attraction to thieves or those who can ably protect their property by wit or muscle. The city watch has all but given up on Shadowshore, and as long as nothing particularly destructive arises from the district (such as fires or riots) they generally leave it to govern itself.
The representative noble of Shadowshore changes more often than any other, as the post is traditionally held by the family (or even the individual) strong enough to protect it from his enemies. Currently, the holder of this title is Emil Dracktus — certainly an assumed name, and head of House Dracktus. He has two alleged children, Darius Draktus ibn Emil and Freya Dracktus. Rumor holds that the Dawn Council would rather have someone less crude and more reliable in this post. Someone like Vico Bevenin of the Amedio Trading Concern, perhaps. Yet for now, no one (Vico included) has made a move on Emil. Those within House Dracktus have no intention to relent on the power they maintain.
