Sword Coast Adventures
Located in Red Larch the Virtuous Butchers are a mercenary company lead by a halfling rogue called Tenthis Underfoot. Whether the leader is the same halfling responsible for rescuing the young prince of Cormyr over one hundred years ago are up to debate, but he is known as a respected leader in the community of Red Larch, and his men.
The Virtuous Butchers act as a militia for Red Larch, supplementing the town guard in times of danger. They also take on whatever job Tenthis approves. including caravan guarding, bodyguard work, and the occasional dungeon delve. The company has earned an upstanding reputation along the Sword Coast, and clients have been known to travel all the way from Neverwinter and Silverymoon to hire the Virtuous Butchers.
The hierarchy of the Butchers is simple. four Captains report to Tenthis, each overseeing a branch of the organization. each captain's title matches the branch of soldiers under their command: Blade Lord, Shadow Lord, Wand Master, and Divine Shield. Each soldier is called by their specialty (blade for warriors, shadows for scouts and infiltrators, wand for arcane caster, and shield for diving protectors). Some jobs call for a singular focus of a certain group, others a mix of each specialty. Either way, the Butchers are prepared to handle almost any situation presented to them.
