“Up and down, their power has gone, thick and thin in people’s minds—their knives still shine.”
For a long time, it was believed that they were formed after the wipeout of the Bergons family, but in recent years, it has been revealed that he, his brothers, and some friends formed it some years prior. And they actually spent the first few years legit, but in 1151 they crossed the line into shady business.
