The crew of the Qilin’s Beacon are known through the Golden Circle and beyond as wych hunters. If your village is having trouble with wyches, necromancers, or vampyrs, they can be hired for a reasonable fee to rid you of them.
Margarita and Jankin Albero
The eponymous Wych Hunters. Bayle soldiers who learned their trade in the Inquisitor Legion, fighting sluagh on the Northern Marches. When it became clear that they would never earn their own land through military service, they gave up their commissions to become mercenaries.
Gifts: Power words, artefact weapons (Margarita’s sword and Jankin’s crossbow)
A Chantris Jachter. The captain of the Beacon was rescued by Margarita and Jankin when his ship ran aground after half his crew succumbed to a necromantic plague. He offered to be their captain, and the gaps in the crew were refilled with Baylish troops. That Chantris/Bayle mix has remained an even split ever since.
Gifts: Broken Pattern, faithful crew of hardy sailors
A Kashfan priest of the Unicorn. The crew discovered her in a ruined village that had been overrun by hungry ghosts. The priest had saved a dozen villagers and was protecting them in the local church. After the crew destroyed the ghosts, Chizoba joined them, saying they needed her help, lest they lose their way.
Gifts: Sorcery (specialising in cleansing and healing)
A sorcerer of the Carth tribe of Mt Caoranach. While clearing a mine of an infestation of zombies, the crew found her, entirely unharmed and quite oblivious, protected by a bubble of hard light. She has a tendency to wander into trouble unawares.
Gifts: Conjuration (specialising in summoning and enchanting)
