Legends of the Dreaming Sea
The Onyx hawks are a crime syndicate that have operating in Planquin for as long as people can remember. Traditionally they have run protection rackets (particularly in the Waist Towns), smuggling (from the Foot Towns) and fencing stolen goods. However under the leadership of their current patriarch they have moved into the very lucrative business of extortion and blackmail.
The Hawks consider themselves to be true Planquinese patriots, exclusively using old Planquin names and claiming direct descent from original Planquin settlers.
After a brutal leadership struggle the Onyx Hawks have collapsed, with all their leaders dead or in hiding
