He is both a man with connections and a low sense of morality. He wants what he wants and the process of getting it is of little to no concern for him. The Guild often receives requests from the man though most have grown to despise working with him for his manipulative and spendthrift ways.
Sergeant, City Watch
Kasadei is a sergeant in Absalom’s City Watch and part of the Special Victims Unit. She normally has up to a dozen guardsmen under her command. Although part of the SVU, her team doesn’t have any special investigative abilities. They are normally used to provide security to the experts that might be investigating an unsafe scene. She sometimes accompanies “civilian contractors” working for the city to legitimize and lend authority to their actions. She is normally equipped with chainmail, shield, longsword, and short bow. Her guardsmen are usually equipped with chainmail and halberds but can swap out for other weapons and shields if the job requires it.
Not everyone that comes to Absalom finds a better life. A small community of homeless people that make up a tiny neighborhood in the Foreign Quarter. There are a number of abandoned buildings in this area. Town guards occasionally attempt to route the members from this area by force but this area of the city is worn out and old and continues to remain a refuge to the down and out. The community even has its own “Mayor”.
Residents largely wiped out defending Funky Town after their link to and worship of Shax was revealed.

Lumber Consortium “company town”. Falcon’s hollow began as a tiny lumbercamp on the savage edge of the untamed wilderness of Darkmoon Vale. today it is a sprawling muddy township that feeds on lumber and misery. Families here live under the thumb of the Lumber Consortium and its unscrupulous Gavel, Thuldrin Kreed, a man who makes a lich seem compassionate. the town has a bloody history, having been beset by evil fey, prowling monsters, and the moaning wraiths of a fallen dwarven empire from without and the hired swords of Kreed from within. to call Falcon’s hollow a little slice of hell on Golarion would be charitable. Still, the desperate and brave flock here like flies to honey. Zealots worship strange gods whose faiths are outlawed elsewhere, adventurers hunt for the lost treasures of dwarven civilizations, and fugitives seek to wash away the blood on their hands in the frontier’s Foam River. Falcon’s hollow promises anyone with a strong back a new life, but new arrivals soon learn it is a life of servitude. to become a lumberjack, a man must sign over his life (some not-so-jokingly say their souls as well) to the Consortium. When the grueling hours and unsafe conditions cut him down, his widow frequently has no choice but to sell herself in Kabran Bloodeye’s brothels to keep their children from starving. this is life in Falcon’s hollow,and those who choose it know only sorrow for the rest of their days
