Blades in the Dark
Owner of the largest Leviathan-hunting fleet
The Strangford dynasty controls the workhouses around Charhollow and has done for several generations. The current Lord Strangford holds a City Council position, along with one of his children. The others have prominent roles in the Bluecoats and the Church of the Ecstasy of the Flesh.
Lord Strangford is rarely seen outside of the high-walled manor which looks over Charhollow. When he does leave, it is in a carriage protected by a great many private guards.
Srangford’s fortune mainly comes from his impressive fleet of Leviathan Hunters. While many of the poorer citizens would love to see him overthrown and his manor razed, they are also dependent on him for the leviathan oil which keeps the city safe.
