Sa'an Crime Cartel
The Sa’an cartel are involved in all things illicit in Shelzar: prostitution, drugs, weapons, gambling, knife pits, skin-dens, theft, smuggling, assassination – it doesn’t matter so long as there is profit to be made. In the city, the Sa’an information gathering network is second to none.
The thirteen masters of the Cartel meet in secret, their faces cowled to protect their identity, save for the head of the guild, called Sa’an (or Old man Sa’an).
The Cartel has no known symbols or identification marks, but the shadowy personage of Old Man Sa’an himself has become a nearly mythical figure around the city and some legends depict his as a wizened monkey-like man with a pointed and curled goatee. For this reason symbols or sketches of monkeys have become popular among members of the cartel.
