GANGS OF LIBERPORTVS
Like all large cities, and indeed like Rome itself, Liberportus has a surplus of poor, young men with too much time and not enough education. These men band together, first in simple social groups and then in criminal ones, to the dismay of their loved ones and the vigilies alike. There are IV major gangs in Liberportus: the Novaculae, the Feroxi, the Cani, and the Ereptori. They are largely identical, all selling narcotics, demanding protection money from merchants, and in general making life harder for the citizenry.
More organized criminal organizations, such as the Syndicate of Finn, look down on the gangs of Liberportus because of their lack of organization and their many, bloody, public conflicts.
Briefly, the various gangs of Liberportus were united by Duccius Sittius Thurinus in a hamfisted attempt to make so much trouble for Statorius Novanus that the Council of Magistrates would have no choice but to reinstate Duccius as Prefectus Vigilium.
The party has dealt with the Novaculae the most, specifically their seccond in command, Cirgal the Briton. Although the Novaculae are criminals they are allies of the PCs and they have saved the lives of the PCs in the events of Gangs of Liberportus.
The Most Honourable Brotherhood of the Novaculae is led by Vulpinus Trebellius Faustus.
The Ancient Fraternity of the Feroxi is led by Titus Decius Pullox.
