The Grey Hand

An elite band of highly-trained, magically gifted, and otherwise exceptional mercenaries, in semi-permanent employ of the city; specifically, they answer to the Masked Lords. They don’t patrol the streets, coasts, or countrysides but stand ready to handle extraordinary threats to the city—such threats as the Watch and the Guard are unprepared to handle, like dragons, berserk golems, and other fantastical hazards that aren’t easily dealt with by common soldiers or constables.
