The Dusk Talons are a group of thieves and brigands from Iriaebor, a town that has not fallen to the sway of the Order of Torm. The Talons style themselves as retainers for hire, apparently serving those who spend the coin to hire them, though they seem to have several unknown criteria for their would-be employers.
The Talons are a major influence in Iriaebor. They desire freedom and oppose the restrictive rule of the paladins, having no issue with using some unconventional means to achieve it.
Under the leadership of Nualla A’Ashemmi, the Talons actively oppose and strike at the Zhentarim who reside in Darkhold. The fight is primarily due to a personal vendetta by Nualla. The few successes in this struggle, especially when preventing attacks on trade caravans on the Dusk Road, have gained them some popularity in the region.
