The Hellion's Wake
Finds and Finders
Finds & Finders, Inc. is a recently formed company, run by Hindsight Hazel. It's scarcely more than an attempt to legitimize the facade of Hazel and her group's sketchy, if lucrative, activities. Based out of Aragosta, Finds & Finders can, for a price, take the initiative in some of the less palatable archaeological and exploratory pursuits. Interfering with a patron's rivals, acquiring another's charts or research, wholesale raiding of new finds for plunder and curios, etc.; little is beyond their unsavoury purview and services.
Often their patrons don't always get exactly what they want. Hazel will chalk up their failings to a thousand excuses; the tomb was empty, the crystal shattered when removed from its' settings, there was nothing of interest on that remote island that doesn't appear on any chart, and so forth. Finds & Finders routinely betrays its' patrons in this way, keeping the best stuff for themselves or outright turning on them and making off with their valuables, intelligence, research and artifacts. Many of their customers have little recourse: often they are desperate members of legitimate organizations that would frown on their methods – or are simply crooks themselves who come to realise they have been outdone by a savvier outfit.
