The Nightwings were once of the fiercest street gangs to ever roam
the Millucis district of Mareilon in the fourth century. Boasting over
a hundred tried-and-true fighting members, the Nightwings competed with
the Hellhounds for control over the shadowy and tenuous underground
world that thrived in the lesser parts of Mareilon. Formed in 393 GUE,
the Wings themselves were a relatively new phenomenon compared to the
At the beginning of 398, the nervous tension of
Mareilon’s crime world reached a fascinating peak as rumors abounded
about a change of power at the top of the Nightwings’ basic structure.
Official word from the bartenders and thieves of the area spoke of an
outsider quickly grasping for control of the gang, pushing out all
those who had held the reins before. This outsider was Zarfil, a
descendant of Prince Argonel who wished to overthrow the governent of
Mareilon and take his rightful place as ruler of the city-state.
Zarfil had been able to convince the leaders of the Nightwings to join
his cause as well as many other influential people of Marielon. Even
though a truce managed to be formed between the Nightwings and the
Hellhounds, transforming them from a criminal organization into a
military force with a mission to attack Galepath, Zarfil did not
dismiss the aide of Marboz.
Together, the unified gangs of Mareilon, under
the command of Zarfil began their insurrection, rioting, burning
buildings, murdering government officials and gained possession of the
entire city in one night. Shortly thereafter, Zarfil lead the gangs
against Galepath. The armies of the two cities collided at the
Jerrimore Plains, where both side were decimated by the Nezgeth tribes.
