The Forgotten are seen as lower than animals by the Crown and are simply tolerated by everyone else. They tend to live exclusively within the sewers, which have earned them the derogatory title of Rats. They're seen as tricksters and thieves, but are overall a peaceful lot. However, that begins to change after the string of murders targeting Royal citizens begin to occur. Strange men and women begin to creep from the sewers, embracing the superstitious stories that follow the murders. A religion of their own begins to take shape as they praise The Blinded Bride, who they deem as a powerful force punishing the Crown for its wrong doings. First it begins as preached words to an anxious crowd, but in little time it leads to riots and armed assaults.
