Red Berry Boys
The Red Berry Boys is a small group of criminals led by the cruel and money-hungry Starfish. Beginning at the border of Sharteshane, they've been kidnapping transients and orphans in order to cut out their insides and use them as containers for smuggling First Silver. Duane and Sette first encounter them in the Knobbytop area of Ulestry, foiling a kidnapping attempt on a pair of children.
- Starfish is the plump leader, who enjoys money and making children suffer.
- Turas is a tall, bald-headed Madishanian, and the member who seems friendliest with Starfish. He was killed and partially eaten by Duane inside of a love hotel.
- Ephsephin is the brute of the group, a spiky-haired, balding Sharteshanian who sports a very loud blue hat. He's fast, tenacious, and a bully, though Duane soundly thrashes him during their first encounter. He was beaten to death with a bottle by Starfish after Jivi slipped rat poison into his booze.
- Cutter is a dull red Two-toe with a proclivity for knives and speaking in rhyme. He's the member in charge of cutting and enchanting the slaves, partly so he can fulfill his uncommon desire to eat the flesh of humans.
- Quigley was hired into the gang for a time but left when Starfish began to steal and butcher children. It was money that bought Quigley's services back, but the arrangement was again short-lived. When Starfish ordered him slain by two Frummagem thugs, Quigley swiftly escaped into the night and left the gang behind for good.
- Bett is an overweight Sharteshanian in a stolen wage-wright's hat with a black market pymary license and education. He began to act as the Red Berry Boys' wright when Quigley left, but was defeated by Duane during their initial encounter. Currently it's assumed he's in the custody of the Peaceguard.
