Whose Cornerstone Is It Anyway?
The Illus are run by a trio of aristocrats, Meira, Brongler, and Triza. They are a jealous and spiteful bunch, and the only thing keeping them together is their love of wealth and power. One of these days there is going to be a war, and the people of the cities are going to suffer for it.
They are currently at war with the Oprex, and have devoted many resources to recruiting impressionable young workers into the group.
