The Fox clan are known for their cunning and far-reaching influence throughout Umbria. When things go poorly for a shopkeeper or a rival noble finds himself lacking a pulse, most suspect the Fox, but no one speaks openly, either for lack of evidence or presence of fear. Despite their underhanded tactics, the Foxes look after their own, and provide for members and associates, proving that there is indeed some honor amongst thieves.
As the Foxes’ hand in organized crime is a secret everyone knows, the Elk clan are dedicated to snuffing it out. The reason it continues to thrive is the Elks insistence on a fair criminal system, which contains loopholes and ways out for any Fox who finds himself detained. Since many of their interests are financial, the Foxes have close ties with the Boars, though this “alliance” is dubious at best, with both sides keeping close eyes on the other.
