Shaitan is a criminal syndicate that operates on a global scale. Generally speaking, rather than running criminal operations themselves, Shaitan provides magical support to other criminal enterprises, usually in the form of mercenary sorcerers, or summoned creatures given to obey for a specific time.

They are known, however, to operate criminal enterprises that target esoteric and magical beings in the world, however, from lore-heists where they raid and steal occult works to thievery of magical artifacts to protection rackets that involve hexing a wealthy target and then charging them to remove it.

Organization

The Shaitan (Leader)

At the top of the pyramid is the Shaitan, the shadowy leader of the entire syndicate. Rumors claim he is either an incredibly potent sorcerer or perhaps a magical entity of some sort; the Zodiac Society claims to have evidence that this is an ancient jinn who escaped imprisonment from a Solomonic vessel nearly 1200 years ago.

The Caliphs (Lieutenants)

Regardless of who they may actually be, the Shaitan does not interfere with the day-to-day operations of the organization, largely leaving that up to the caliphs, as long as they continue to succeed and empower the organization. Rumors claim that the Shaitan mostly acts to keep the various caliphs in check, and to stir the pot occasionally to keep their rivalries at a boiling point sufficient to keep any of them from making a bid to take over as the Shaitan themselves.

The Caliphs are each mob bosses in their own right, and their gangs make up the rank and file of Shaitan itself. They tend to have specific specialties: one may specialize in dealing with a specific criminal syndicate or underworld element, while another specializes in recruitment, or in lore-heists.

Known Caliphs include:

  • Mafia witch
  • Yakuza sorcerer
  • Recruitment
  • Hex protection racket
  • Magical security specialist
  • Demon summoner
