The Nexus Anthology
The Forsaken's Bastards
Though most mercenary companies call Cinnabar their home, few actually police it. The Forsaken’s Bastards have the highest presence on the streets of Cinnabar, and they watch them carefully. The group takes pride in individual strength and only the best of the best are chosen by Beshra, the leader of the Bastards. She sometimes takes talented warriors from other mercenary companies if she thinks they’re wasting their skills as just a pawn in a larger army. The Bastards tend to work in smaller groups, as Beshra believes that one of her men is worth 10 of any other company. Because of this, folks mostly see them traveling alone or in pairs.
The company has no uniform or colors and are only given away by the massive unwieldy swords that each member wears on their back. Though they always carry these swords, no one has ever seen them use one. The Forsaken’s Bastards can wear whatever weapon they choose at their sides and will always use it before the one they carry on their back.
