A demure and friendly contact in the Red Sashes

Railjacks
Railjacks, sometimes called Line Bulls, work the ghost lines—the electroplasmic railroad that passes through the ink-dark deadlands between cities. Spirits of the dead—free to roam the world since the gates of death were broken in the cataclysm—often get entangled in the powerful electrical field generated by the trains.  Line bulls like you walk the length of the cars, magnetized boots clanking and breather-mask hissing, to clear the offending spirits with your lightning-hooks before they do too much damage.

Gnurlnap the Urn-Bearer
Irascible, difficult old man. Seller of tea and... other things.
Technically your first lieutenant and employee, although he clearly thinks you're Lampblacks.
He runs the petty dock that supplies rum and tea, and leviathan blood to passing gondoliers and stevedores who sell it in Nightmarket.




Sergeant Lochlan
A senior bluecoat sergeant at the local watch station, reporting to Captain Dunvil. A shrewd, tough woman, Lochlan is viewed as 'reasonable' by the underworld, taking bribes and pay-offs or enforcing the law  when necessary.
