In mine, they have exactly one. I presumed the character
'SnakeFang' to be one. And he can't necessarily do all the things mentioned
in the Lanbril writeup either. And certainly not for anyone. I also assume
he wasn't trained in Pavis.
I've often wondered exactly HOW this advanced criminal culture
managed to arise, where the thieves had their own alchemists and
artificers. I assume it must have arisen in some large urban centre where
the thieves have had it good for some time. Probably Nochet.

I've been playing most of the Pavis gangs pretty much this way. The
Black Fang cult is certainly a lot like the Mafia.
