House Gilliam: to Carve an Empire from Ashes
It is unknown to most what goes on behind the Black Bounty. Truth be told there are very few cogs in the operation these days. Since the fall of Artemis the organization that spread throughout the expanse has waned somewhat. What is known is that if you want to contract the Black Merc you will have to go through a peppery woman known as Alice Throne although she is never anything but Miss Throne to Davian. Miss Throne is the eyes, ears, and contractual dignitary to the Black Bounty. She watches over his funds, approves bounties, weighs the risk vs. rewards of contracts, and most importantly of all has a direct line to Davian Black himself. At any and all times she has the power unlike all others to summon the Black Bounty.
She is not to be confused with the Black Hand, a roll that Davian is currently looking to be filled but she comes in as a close 2nd. Her shrewd attitude and sharp-witted humor has won over or enraged countless clients but in the end she is the one to deal with if the services of the Black Bounty are to be had. A price that many, if not charmed, are willing to endure.
As far as their relationship is concerned Davian Black has the utmost respect for Miss Throne’s shrewd business savvy. She is easy on the eyes and clearly has a thing for him. Her embarrassing flirtatious attempts at him are played off as a joke but the fact that she has been in a long-term relationship with another man and has yet consented to marriage is just one of many example of her inability to get over the man she truly desires.
