The Resistance

The reality of life within the Kingdom of Shadows is that the territories controlled by the Umbral Throne are lands that were very recently under the control of the Raphans in Dun Fitheach. So those members of these communities who were not migrated (and many who were) often hold allegiance not to the God-king of Night, but still to the House of the Rapha. And since the Raphan Empire is simultaneously at war with House Creliam in Dun Fitheach, the Jyhad, and the Kingdom means that a great number of those in the outlying townships hold sympathy for the Raphan cause, often seeing the Kingdom as false rulers. Some of these go so far as to take up arms, in various ways, against the Kingdom and its allies, either for religious reasons (as in the case of the Order of Saint Cyprian) or for political reasons (as in the case of House Bolseau).
