Let me introduce you to some of the most notorious crime families. Here you’ll find the names of each family, their heads and seconds in command, what each family is notorious for, notable members, and any notable “extended family” (meaning they are involved with the family but not considered part of it).

“You don’t understand! You have the wrong person!” shouted Zep as he struggled in his bindings.
“Silence traitor! How dare you deny your crimes against Queen Morgan!” barked the Vallite Commander. “You and your despicable Court of Ashes are nothing but ingrates! Have you forgotten who saved this kingdom?”
“Gods, I haven’t! That’s what I’m telling you! The real danger is still out there! I prevented the attack. If it wasn’t for me, Queen Morgan and everyone at the ball would have died! Please, you have to believe me. I need to speak to the Queen. She may be in danger still as well as the Nohrian and Hoshidan royalty!”
“I’ve heard enough of your treacherous lies! You will come nowhere near her Highness and you will be executed.” At that, the Vallite guards drew their bows, ready to fire at the Commander’s order.
Okay but what if the Silencer got to Applewatch in time, before the Black Hand slaughtered Lucien, but not before they turned on him. What if the Silencer confessed to being the traitor, confessed to working alone, ignoring Lucien’s contracts and instead killing off members of the Black Hand at their own will. What if the remaining members do to the Silencer what they would have done to Lucien, and Lucien has to join in. Join in flaying and mutilating someone who has just saved his life, because he knows for damn sure the Silencer isn’t the traitor, but if he speaks up he won’t be believed and their sacrifice would be for nothing.
