The Bratva

The Bratva (lit. "Brotherhood") are an organised crime syndicate once operating out of The Free City of Pax. They were rivals with The Guild, and in 2017 AE, briefly overthrew the Guild's de facto rulership of Pax before being dislodged.

The Bratva are considered ruthless and violent, exceeding the Guild's tolerance for cruelty and brutal pragmatism. They are renowned for their skilled alchemists, from whom they derive the strength of their footsoldiers, the Bratva alchemicals and ironclads. 

Their leader, Vladimir, was revealed to be a Demon when the Bratva were forced out of Pax by the crew of the Waveblade. Their current location is unknown.
