The Six are a group of five ragtag, daring scoundrels who secretly collect and distribute knowledge in Marielda.
The Six’s lair sits next to the Hanging Gardens of Maelgwyn in Chrysanthemum Parish, hidden beneath Ethan Hitchcock's (secret) dueling school, which is, in turn, hidden beneath Edmund Hitchcock's (publicly known) dancing school. A large rug covers the floor of the main room. Boxes full of hard-earned and treasured information are covered in fabrics and used as tables. Bookshelves line the walls, stuffed with books, while an extensive system of filing cabinets and smaller boxes store papers and scraps of papers. The center of the room is dominated by a large table, often covered in books and papers and any tools used on their last job. To The Six, it’s cozy and familiar; to an outsider, it would appear chaotic.
Outside of their main lair, The Six also maintain a secret library. People may come and sit in a booth, rather like a confessional, and be given knowledge. At the bottom of the library is a pipe organ.
They have an alliance with the Red Rank Irregulars, a group of mercenaries led by Claret Holiday. The Yellow House, the underground university established during the Quiet Year, has a fierce rivalry with The Six. The city’s book police, the Fontmen, also caught wind of The Six’s exploits, and at one point went to war with them.
