Horror On The Orient Express
The Brothers of the Skin
Cult or criminal gang, this organization of killers, thieves, and slavers has operated out of Constantinople for over a century. They frequently use the ruins of The Shunned Mosque as a headquarters.
They have acted as agents of “divine” justice, bringing the wrath of of ancient Babylon gods down on those willing to pay for it, but this may only be a convenient cover story and intimidation tactic. Authorities in Turkey have occasionally attempted to wipe them out, but they always seem to return. Many assume they are agents of Selim Makryat, though there are hints they are the current incarnation of a cult that stretches back millenia.
