South Pit Ward
South Pit Ward
(Third Age; Post Sundering)
South Pit is the colloquial name for the large sprawling “under ward” of Unifica Primae, located to the south of the Irin Ward. Unlike most wards of the city, it has access to natural light in some areas, and though it is as thickly swathed in smoke and oily filth as most other “under wards”, and is just as riddled with crime and danger, it is seen as a half decent place to live – at least by those who live in such districts as the Night Streets, The Rumbles and Clanktown.
The official Legate of the region is one Aldon Thadyn (Born 2453 N.C.; 981 P.S.); a high born who made a few enemies within the Order as he grew up, and so was put in charge of a less than desirable ward. Despite this, he has worked hard to turn the ward into a safer and more pleasant place for its citizens, and despite fierce opposition amongst his peers who see him as an idealistic bumpkin (often referring to him as “the little boy”), he continues to do his best for “his” people.
The unofficial leader of the ward is Tommo “the breaker” Mcgaul; a former bare knuckle fighter turned crime boss, who oversees the " South Pit Strongarms " – a well organised gang of brutes and thugs who extract “taxes” from local businesses and families for “protection”, and occasionally work with outside agents to organise more profitable and audacious crimes.
Tommo became seen less often after Aldon declared him a “persons of special interest” and put a bounty of 350 Crowns upon his head.
