Brillare

It is no secret that the Brillare are the newest kids on the block when it comes to the crime families, and while it is tempting to think that they are harmless, one must remember: cats have claws. Starting from the ambitions of their leader, Glimmer, she saw an opportunity to make cash and satisfy her obsession in magical items. Using the wealth she had accumulated over the years working with Madame Genevieve Leclair, she started her operation to get around the prohibition of magical contraband. She opened Glimmers Boutique. Here, she attracts hunters, other nobles, and even adventurers to auction off their rare finds; like antiques and art pieces, before reselling them with magical items hidden within them.
  At first she had nothing more then a small personal crew of friends and acquaintances that she had made over the years of performing. Due to her unique business idea, vast wealth, and her family ties with the merchants guild, her boutique quickly caught on with the nobles and she was able to produce quick results. Catching his attention and sensing an opportunity for business, Rajiv would invite her to The Bloated Bounty. He would propose a business arrangement with her, introducing her to the criminal underworld of Vallaki and becoming close business partners; netting Glimmer ties to both the merchants and the thieves guild.
  Since then her business has boomed exponentially. She has quite the long list of clients and buyers, getting to the point in which there might not be a noble or powerful person left in the city that doesn't have some connection to Glimmer. She has even made a business alliance with the Danesti, albeit it is tenuous and fresh.   Nowadays everyone who is anyone knows who the Brillare are. Businesses who wish to have their merchandise left untouched are expected to pay monthly "dues" for their protection. And those who opt-out or fail to live up to expectations are severely punished. Because of this, it is nearly impossible to start a small business in the city.
