More properly known as 'The Guild of the Ember Crest', the Embers are a secret society of Thieves. Originally founded with noble aims, the Embers had very strict rules forbidding murder when out robbing. Recently, however, they have begun to adopt all kinds of vicious tactics. The current Guild Master attained his position when certain of his rivals met with mysterious accidents, and once in power, he organised a purge of the 'old school' -- Embers who didn't believe in violence. One of these is Dungar, a well-respected thief, who turned away from the Guild when he saw how things were going.
