The port city of Five Fingers is a wretched hive of scum and villainy. It is only nominally run by the nation of Ord, which has appointed a mayor. In reality the city is run by the infamous “High Captains” – a group of criminal lords who have loosely held alliances with each other.
The High Captains are a treacherous bunch who constantly jockey for position in their own twisted hierarchy. There are currently 4 High Captains and one, Belchor Degrata, who is retired. Jannish Riordan is one such High Captain who has run afoul Treadle, Via and Charles.
