So i have written a bunch of new factions for the campaign i am in, so i figured i would share. i will post them in sections. here are ones i made for the Docks district. later on i will post a formatted document with all of them.
The Aries Family are an Akorosian and Severosi clan of merchants and laborers, who raised a successful business in the docks out of nothing. They own several wharfs and boathouses, as well as a few boats. Their business is mostly legitimate, but they gained their success by taking advantage of every opportunity, ethical or not.
Appius Aries is the middle-aged head of the family, overseeing all their business, and keeping their children & cousins in line.
Laela Brit-Aries is the elderly Severosi matriarch, Appius’ mother. She married the late Stanislao Aries, bringing their two families together, and making them a power in the Docks
Daido Aries is the nephew of Appius, in charge of the family’s operations in the field, particularly those less than ethical.
Zabette Aries is Appius’ daughter, managing the business’s finances and paperwork. Kallias Brit is Laela’s nephew, a former sailor, and the family’s hitman & bullyboy.

The Blue Rose Distillery in the Docks is a well known producer of spirits and wines, recently saved from economic collapse by the mysterious new owners. They now produce various potions and elixirs, serving locations in the Docks, Silkshore, and even Nightmarket. In addition to producing alcohol and potions, their trade obscures a smuggling operation, specializing in alchemicals, poisons, and ghosts.
Mariel Tremblay is the enigmatic businesswoman who recently acquired the Blue Rose. No one had heard of her until a year ago, and her background is unknown.
Elouan Stroud is Tremblay’s shadowy partner, and a skilled whisper. He deals with the Blue Rose’s business in the underworld. Stroud may have connections with the Nightfists.

The Badgers are a newer gang of manipulators and extortionists. They have somehow managed to sustain a pirate business model. They own a couple businesses in the docks, rather than simply extorting them.

The Dock Ducks are a cheap gang of street thugs and bullyboys. They are a strangely persistant annoyance to the other gangs of the Docks.
Jekyll Towner is a docker, and the leader of the Ducks. He recruits thugs from among the dockers.
Eliav Gage is the proprietor of the Mulled Mallard, a popular pub among dockers and sailors. He makes sure that his customers are not caught in trouble caused by the Ducks, and that he and the Mallard maintain deniability.
