Daughters of Iomedae
For over 200 years this secret society of “women of the night” has been molding and shaping the politics of Vaniya. While technically they offer their deadly services for hire to those in the know, they are very selective about their missions.
They follow the teachings of Iomedae, believing that Justice and Honor should temper the heart of every ruler. Their profession gives them the greatest access to their desired targets. While they are scorned and looked down upon by the warriors and noble knights that are typically Iomedae’s champions, clever Vaniyans know the deadly power these women posses. Their skills have been honed, and their art perfected over centuries.
Only the wealthiest of clients can secure the services (deadly or delightful) of the Daughters of Iomedae. And if a client comes asking for murderous work on their behalf, there is more than one instance that the Daughter of Iomedae have judged their motivations bent and evil, and marked that person as a target instead. Thus, it is said that only the truly just can seek remedy in their silk-lined dens.
