For 500 years, The Whispering Shadow has acted as the primary covert ops and intelligence unit for Nylevran. The agents of the Shadow are to be feared, donning armor as black as night. I've met a few. Scary fellows. They are based out of their own building near the Brass Citadel of Vigilance. Referred to as The Nest, the interior seems far too small, considering how large the outside is.
Throughout Nylevran's history, they have carried all the secrets society has been led to forget. Some even say Light Magic existed at one point and built a vast order of Knights across the country. It is implied they have carried out the assassination of overly powerful political leaders. Only the Shadow knows for sure.
Most famous among them is Maar Baruch. He is a dignified, distant, and powerful man. He does not tower among men, but his strike is something to be feared. It is believed he speaks every known language on Cyrdoma. His only known moment of weakness was the disappearance of his young student, Dedricus Hadiel, three years prior, which hurt him deeply. One of his most notable traits is perhaps the weapon he wields into battle. Tizona is an Ogaitnan-forged two-handed sword with a handle nearly as long as the thick blade. While appearing comical, the weapon is a slab of steel and death.
Even this is a bit much. Perhaps we can discuss them more another time.
