Monks of the Open Hand
The Order of the Open hand is a mendicant order of monks who act as spies and assassins for the Church of the Sublime Hand. A somewhat common sight in Carani, their members can usually be seen begging in the streets, wearing habits of white linen and dark-blue silk sashes. Known members include Brother Tariq and Sister Fatima. Although primarily a morially dubious yet highly efficient intelligence network for the church, their members also provide relief to the poor in times of war, famine or plague.
