The Brotherhood of Latronis is the most prominent trade organization in Visola, and its influence reaches amazingly far. Made up of mostly merchants and traders, the Brotherhood’s most significant presence is in Thelasia, where it has done wonders for the harbor city’s economy. Some say the Brotherhood of Latronis has more control in Thelasia than the Imperium. Members of the Brotherhood can be found almost anywhere, however, crafting and trading goods marked with the organization’s seal.
Any area where the Brotherhood has a strong influence is certain to be an economic utopia, a melting pot of all different races and cultures where merchants thrive and everyone else easily makes enough gold to live comfortably. The Brotherhood of Latronis always makes a great effort to protect its members and its interests, considering anything that would disrupt the flow of goods to be a serious threat.
There is a less known darker side to the Brotherhood of Latronis, however. The most apparent of this is that they have little tolerance for independent merchants within their territory, who are either convinced to join the Brotherhood or are not permitted to do business. There are also some rumors that the Brotherhood deals in smuggling and the sale of illegal goods, but these are simply unfounded.
