A company of soldiers made up of convicted criminals and deserters who were given the choice to serve the Legions of Terror or die. Their symbol is a golden noose. They are nominally part of the Fifteenth Legion.
It serves as Catherine Foundling's version of Black Knight's personal guard, the Blackguards. Catherine's idea for the company was based on an old Callowan company known as the Forlorn Hope, established by the Queen of Blades.
