The Black Hand
Founded by the illusive man known only as “The Shadow Bringer” this organization first appeared around 914 YK.
Infamously known as a terrorist cell group, the balck hand is responsible for many attacks and acts of destruction across Khorvaire. The overall goals of the black hand is largely unknown except for the fact that it seams to be highly raciest. The back hand claims to do work in the name of all that is good for humanity.
Originally the group was comprised of only humans and some undead. Many of its members were defects from other factions including soldiurs form the Emerald Claw who served under the Shadow Bringer in his time as a commanding officer. Other BlackHand accociates included defects from even such reputable conglomerates as the Dragonmarked Houses, The Aurum and even the Church of the Silver Flame. Reasons for their defection are unknown, yet the blackhand’s coruption as spread rappidly to many small busnesses and other legitamit operations including political parties and maybe even the The Royal Families, so it is suspected that this corruption has lead to the defect of so many followers who now serve the ShadowBringer.
Eventually, as the arm of the BlackHand grew longer, other non-human races were seen working directly with the terrorists. This is proof of how highly influential the black hand has become. And while they have never been seen marching as an army nor has a black hand base of operations ever been discovered it is highly probable that their numbers exceed those of the Emerald Claw from which they can have said to be born.
