The Spiral is a shadowy organization known only to the Elves whom participate in shadowy machinations of their own from time to time.
Their true goals and motivations are not known. Their operations have been silent for many years, even to those who are actively looking for them. Recently they have made a move to capture a high profile bounty named Vincent Grailmore, due to his bloodline which is believed to be important.
No one knows how The Spiral organizes their operations, or the internal chain of command. Though it is known that they control their agents through any means necessary.
The Spiral controls its agents through a magical pendant. The pendant can track and communicate with agents, it can also make them suffer illness, pain, or cause them to become unconscious. Removal of the pendant without proper magical assistance will cause the agent to die.
