Mob - The Five Families
The Five Families control the Warehouse District and the adjoining and northern docks. Any mob hoping to survive for long in this area must decide whether it stands in support of the Five Families or against them. Those that deign to support the Families are protected against their wrath, but must tithe 25% of their income every month. Those that stand against the Five Families will find that their rackets are constantly under assault, that thugs follow their gangs from ward to ward, and that the city watch seems to unerringly know when and where their crimes will take place.
In council, all 5 godfathers are treated as equals, though the reigning boss is Master Hisron, a heavy-set tiefling sorceror. Though given to diplomacy, Hisron has no qualms about using violence to eliminate persistent troublemakers, especially if they threaten to unbalance the Five Families.
