Arcane Renaissance: Terra Rynn
The Sapphire Company
The Sapphire Company is well regarded private mercenary organization based out of the Scietti Republic. Many of its senior members are Sciettish, however their ranks are technically open to anyone. The Republic does not maintain a true standing army, barely little more than a security force. Instead, they rely on these private organizations in case of military threat, though due to the republics island location, there is rarely a need.
The Sapphire company has a reputation for brutal efficiency and effectiveness. The sapphire motiff is an ode to the prestige of the group, as sapphires are considered the most valuable gem in Elven lore. Despite the innocuous name, though, exists a disciplined and experienced. Most member who join will spend several years as trainees, which receive drastically reduced payouts from contracts, and little else. Many often look for work else where, rather than withstand the training. Those that stay, however, join some of the most professional and hardened fighters and operators in Terra Rynn.
When not contracted by the Scietti Republic, which has favored client status, the Sapphire Company frequently accepts contracts for jobs from many other nation states or well connected organizations. While their most common job is to work as private security, they are known to be hired to 'rescue' items or individuals of import. Also, while it hasn't been confirmed, it is rumored that the outfit has taken a number clandestine operations, including insurrection and assassination.
