The Black Horse Bounty Hunters:
Spoiler
Show
This disreputable band consists of about twenty-five men, commanded by Renard Woodsman, who stays at his camp is in the mountains south of Gate Pass. Renard's second-in-command, Kathor Danava, is in charge of the bounty hunters' mission to capture magic-users in the city.

Kathor was formerly in the Ragesian military—his father is the general leading the army coming to Gate Pass—but he left recently, apparently under some supposed threat from the Inquisitors.

All Black Horse members wear an armband—red, with a black horse head, and letters that say 'Black Horse' in Ignan.

The armbands read 'Murderers', not 'Black Horse'. Apparently the tailor that fashioned them was not particularly satisfied with the troupe.


Lyanne also realizes that the bounty hunting document has an attachment--a diplomatic passport that allows Kathor--and only Kathor--to enter and exit the city freely.
