The Tieflings of the Clan Hold
There are four Tiefling leaders of the Clans in the current town the Hand is in. These four have power and the final say among the four houses, an each seemingly sees to a different aspect of the town. They have also said that they founded the town, so they are much older than they appear. There is also a fifth Tiefling, Barter, who is a cleric and acts as the record keeper for the other four. Whether the group will ultimately be allied with or thrown aside remains in question, but for now, the Hand is helping them.
Siobahn – A red Tiefling who wears glasses and has antlers. She’s fairly short, standing at 3 ft. give or take. The leader of the clan in charge of hunting and craftsmanship. Her clan’s lodge is filled with people working on multiple projects and contraptions. She eventually betrayed her fellow Tieflings and attempted to take a book that they had access to.
Kiern – A red Tiefling with long flowy orange hair who has a muscular build. He’s tall, standing above 6’5’’. Kiern’s clan has the most members in the town. The leader of the clan in charge of reinforcement and fighting. His lodge is filled with food, meat, and contains magical holding cells in its’ basement. The clan utilizes a reinforcement magic that allows them to strengthen material and its’ members are the primary fighting force. He is on good terms with Sgt. Meyers. Ended up in a Coma after Siobahn took a unique artifact for herself.
Yde – A gray, reptilian-looking Tiefling with wings and horns that have been shaven down. He would look human if you didn’t know what you were looking for. The leader of the clan in charge of medicine that has ties to necromancy. His lodge is primarily used as a medicinal lodge and his clan members help with all manner of aliments. Ended up in a Coma after Siobahn took a unique artifact for herself.

Barter- A cobalt blue Tiefling who wears custom tailored clothing and gold embellishments. A cleric of an unknown God related to trade/the passing of coin. He keeps the records for the town and takes notes on every meeting that occurs. He also seemingly oversees all gambling . He refers to the other Tieflings as his aunt and uncles.
Important People in the Nexus
Amaya WaterSpike-Roberson – A pretty drow with elegant tastes who dislikes the outdoors and prefers the comforts of city life. She has taken an interest in the Traitor Hunters and is allowing them to stay in her Magnificent Mansion for the time being and has vouched for their entry into the Port. She is extremely connected and wealthy, with her family being the one’s who founded the Port. She wants something from the Traitor Hunters and thinks they could be “useful” later down the road.
The Clerk – In the Arena where Frank is currently being held captive, the Gamemaster has a Clerk who seems to oversee all monetary transactions. Transactions legal or otherwise. The two seem to be close.
The Game Master – The head overseer of the Arena. He is currently expecting 1900 gold from the Traitor Hunters in order to free Franklin from the fights.
Jayel – A seasonal drow guard for the Lady Roberson. He showed Oops and Persi around the Nexus on their first day. He used to be an executioner in the arena and he is planning on using his gold to head to the free states.
Notable individuals who the party considers a threat to either themselves or the Pantheon.
Frank and Stein were betrayed by Reva, a elven Deck Member who took their sister away and allied herself with a strange, corrupted minotaur after betraying the Deck. She has a distinctive shield that the Traitor Hunters are trying to locate so they can stop the threat she poses and rescue the sibling’s sister. She may have other allies and she appears to be actively sabotaging efforts in Frontier 51 Red.
