Ade - Operations. As an action, choose one ally and one enemy, each of which is within 30 feet of you and that you can see. The ally can use a reaction to move their speed and make a weapon attack against the enemy. If the attack hits, the enemy is knocked prone.

Takitar - Narcotics. You have advantage on saving throws against poison. Additionally, when a creature within 5 feet of you that you can see is reduced to 0 hit points but not killed outright, you can use your reaction to give that creature a stimulant. The creature regains a number of hit points equal to 1d8 + your proficiency bonus, and gains a number of temporary hit points equal to 10 + your character level.

Malum - Negotiations. You gain proficiency in the Persuasion skill. You can make a Charisma check with advantage, and can do so again after you finish a long rest.
Additionally, you can cast the disguise self and suggestion spells, requiring no material components. Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells. You can cast each spell once in this way, and regain the ability to do so when you finish a long rest.

Kat - Records. You gain proficiency in the Arcana skill. Additionally, if you are unable to cast spells of 1st level or higher (either because you have no spellcasting ability, you have expended all your spell slots, or you have used all your innate spells), you can cast the following spells using Intelligence as your spellcasting ability:
At will: detect magic, mage hand, minor illusion
3/day each: comprehend languages, disguise self, faerie fire
1/day each: invisibility, locate object

Boots - Spy. Your spy makes it much harder for your enemies and even your allies to know what you’re up to. Your spy increases the DC for agents spying on you by 3 plus 1 per level of your spy’s network.
In addition, your spy knows which nearby folk might be interested in signing on to your service. Each time you roll on your followers chart, the spy lets you increase or decrease your roll by up to 3 plus 1 per level of your network. By this method you gain some measure of control over whom you recruit.

King, Lambert, Renfry, and Lilian - The Gates. Defectors from the Torment of Claws these rogues and mercenaries tried making their own way but were quickly beaten down by both the Claws and Blackfyre, reaching an agreement to work under Blackfyre.
They run their own operations and send a hefty cut to Blackfyre, when tasks are requested of them they prioritise jobs from Blackfyre above any other they may have. They have a small base located in sewers of Tulip Heights.
King and Lilian died during their ambush alongside Blackfyre outside Cros-Glas on a mystery shipment bound for Sunwood.1)
Ansley reported that while the Claws were waiting for the mystery shipment they encountered Lambert and Renfry, and killed them.2)
