The Longest Journey
The Fane Takara
One of the more famous amongst the many “Independents” of Gunmetal city of Scintilla, a Fane is a weapons cartel-combine whose mercantile stand on par with that of a minor rogue trader dynasty. Fane Takara is a rising power, very young for a Fane, yet has proved surprisingly resistant and has managed to stave off several takeover attempts by greater Fanes. The latest failed attempt was by the Fane of Daru and in the aftermath a smouldering resentment still lies between the two Fanes. With a steadily expanding businesses and a reputation as aggressive pursuers of good deals many eye them with interest… and hostility. Their device is a red gothic cross upon black, their colours similarly red and black.
Fane Takara specializes in the production of high quality laser weaponry, possible through their strong connection with the Adeptus Mechanicum. Unique amongst the Fanes and Forges of Gunmetal they have a few selected templates from the venerable Aegis Data Fragment. In addition to this they produce, as most larger Fanes, most common weapon and munitions patterns. Finally, on contract, they do produce unique pieces for individuals with the wealth to procure them.
