“Up and down their power has gone, thick and thin in peoples minds -their knifes still shines”
For a long time it was believed that they where formed after the wipeout of Bergons family, but in recent years its been reviled that he with his brothers and some friends formed it some years prior. And they actually spent the first few years legit, but in 1151 SA they crossed the line into shady business.
The punishment was though, in the minds of people, deemed harsh and in the following 15 years they grew in power. Managing to get the support of the lowborn in their raids and plunder, and the coin of highborn fractions needing head-crackers and throat slitters, was his mightiest deed.
A deed which was a culmination of hard work, good planning and a ruthless hand managing his organization. So in 1166 Bergon became minister and the Borgians a de facto secret police.
Around 1220 the organization had matured into the official secret police of the state. So the need arose for a cut between the secrecy gatherers and the throat cutters. So in 1221 Bergon gave orders to try infiltrate and duplicate the Dark Needles. Its known to be his biggest mistake ever, as Setil became so upset by the move. That he for the only known time, broke a contract and released the son of King Leoandry II. Who when returning to his fathers court, blamed Bergon as the mind behind the staged drowning years earlier.
This resulted in the organization plummeting from power and several members publicly distancing themselves. Quite foolish, as those not punished by Leoandry II, Bergon spent proper time to round up and terminate. Licking wounds, cleaning house and investigating the planted rumor, Bergon traveled to The Lair and faced Setil. The talk resulted in a truce which allowed the Borgians to regain some of their lost power.
A power just strong enough, alongside newfound allies such as Lionels Five Fingers and the Holy Star Order, to prevent Meanbone and the Junnatu Weavers from going full force in the punishment of Bergon due his role in the theft of Meanbone's Hearth.
Its said the Borgians played a vital role in revealing the Invader locations, and in crippling their support lines.
Bergon is the undisputed leader. Some say his sisters each control a part of the organization, answering only to him.
They can’t be found, but if you search they will show up.
