Tezenelia: An Envoy To Sovehles
The Black Fleet
Also known as the Ivuuthian Genetic Court, these pirates swear 'fealty' to King Nerajan, who resides in the Palace of Wekecha near the Ivuuth Sar coastline. They are not actually feudalistic as their name might imply, but they humor their king's love of grandiose court drama.
The Black Fleet prefers to capture the crew of enemy vessels, enslaving the prisoners and bringing them back their lord. In exchange, they are granted gene-grafts and mutations that make them ever hardier and more resilient to the harsh conditions of the post-spine spike Sovehles.
