The Dun’cahrun is an organized crime syndicate that is based in Nyxiana but now also has a prominent presence in Antiford, namely in Argenstrath. It is a loose association of criminal groups that share a common organisational structure and code of conduct. The basic group is known as a family or clan, each of which has claim over a territory where it operates, usually a town a neighbourhood/district if in a large city.
They are distinguished from other gangs and mobs by their adherence to a central set of rules as well as their use of information and intimidation over pure brutality or violence, though they are certainly not opposed to the latter. The dun’cahrun has a formal hierarchy that allows them to efficiently run a variety of large-scale criminal activities. These include (but are not necessarily limited to):
- Vote rigging and political bribery
- water condensing
- counterfeiting currency and documents
- arbitrating disagreements (especially those of criminal nature
- Labor racketeering
- protection racketeering
- Smuggling (weapons and cultural wears such as art)
- loan sharking
