* TheDreaded: Royce to the Black Diamonds. He was once a member of their guild until one of his guildmates got him sent to Manzant, a HellHolePrison where inmates mine salt in horrible conditions until they die. Royce eventually got his freedom and the first thing he does is wage an absolutely vicious and bloody one-man war against his old guild, which he pretty much won after about a year's worth of killing them (that time period was named the "Year of Fear"). Now the Black Diamonds regard Royce with nothing short of abject terror. How feared is he, you ask? In one instance, a guild member who didn't recognize Royce played a con on him and Hadrien and stole their horses and everything on them. Royce wasn't fooled one bit and was just playing ignorant in the hopes of teaching Hadrien that few people share his sense of altruism. To that end, he left a note in one of the saddlebags saying that if his and Hadrien's horses weren't returned posthaste, then he was going very unhappy. The guild promptly returned the horses and supplies, even giving them a fresh shod and groom, and left a note of their own which essentially said, "this dumb guild member didn't know who you were, we're very sorry, please don't kill us."
