The Shadow League brings a holy passion to their job as assassins. While most hired killers simply do it from a combination of sadistic pleasure and monetary greed, the Shadow League considers each death, each perfect kill, an act of worship. The more silent the death and the more unsuspecting the target, the murderer earns that much more grace in the eyes of the Lords of Shadow.
The League believes their divine patrons exist to maintain order and balance between the two extremes of light and dark, of good and evil. The Shadow League takes contracts only after consulting their deities through an Umbral priest. They care not if the target represents the qualities of good and righteousness or base and abject evil, only that the creature’s death ensures the continued order of the universe.
To aid in assassinations, the Shadow League bestows upon their most capable operatives a throwing dagger called ebon whispers. The blade is made of black steel and possesses a deep channel to better funnel off arterial blood. Rumors tell that a few early examples of the blade — lost when a Shadow assassin failed on an assignment or a victim escaped with the blade lodged in their flesh — reside in treasure hoards or the secret holdings of dukes and kings. If true, such knives are best kept in secret.
The Shadow League would stop at nothing to reclaim one of their daggers.
