The long War Rising
Kaiserhan Criminal Syndicates
The following is a list of a few of the most prominent syndicates currently operating in the Kaiserhan Empire. What makes these groups criminal isn’t their dealing of various substances or activities which aren’t illegal themselves, but wrather the violence and extremes that they’ll go to in order to obtain and keep certain permits.
The Mondian family is currently the largest operating criminal organization in the empire. Based out of Mar Castilo and headed by the Monde family, the Mondians deal largely in Me’hradian spices and goods. Mondian operations can be found in every major city in Kaiserhan and frequently have their hands in local politics. The current wars in Me’hrad have been very profitable for the Mondians, as more legitimate sources of spices have dried up or become contested, the Mondians have had little quandry turning to less than scrupulous and questionable sources of spice. This has given them more or less a monopoly on large quantity spice trade in the empire which has left their coffer overflowing with gold. This sudden increase of wealth and resources has bolstered their ranks and has them now setting their eyes on some of the other crime families with aspirations of expanding into other markets.
The Korsning Bruisers
The Kornsing Bruisers have rather humble and unglamorous origins as a simple street gang. Hailing from the city of Riviere Korsning they were orignially a simple street gang that had a fair amont of muscle and go back to when the city was still an independant city state. They became more notorious when the gang played a crucial role in turning away an invading army from Beaulache. This notoriety propelled the position of the gang and they soon became one of the most prominant and powerful gangs in the city. When the city became part of the Empire the Bruisers took the opportunity and greatly expanded. The main focus of the Bruisers is operating gambling dens and bordellos. There are few large gambling dens in the Empire that the bruisers don’t control, and have been known to quite vehemently defend their permits at any cost, their reputation for skillful brutality has kept competion minimal. Lately they have been under increased pressure from the Mondian family who have ben enroaching on their buisnesses.
