The Gold Chain is a high end mercenary company from the Menagerie Coast. Members can be identified by a gold chain around their necks and the hilts of their swords. They number around a couple of hundred, and have a reputation of being ruthless.
The Gold Chain Mercenary Company began as a group of disgruntled Zhelezo who managed to buy out their contracts and become a bodyguard service. Ten years ago, their leader disappeared in Darktow. Since then, they haven't formally announced a leader, at least not one that is publicly known.
