Resurgence of the Breathless
Keirmet’s Krazies is a band of homeless people, addicts, and lunatics who control the slums. They will murder anyone they find snooping around the slums who isn’t supposed to be there, but if a newly penniless unfortunate stumbles into the slums because he has nowhere else to go, then he is accepted with open arms.
The Krazies do not have a hierarchy. Everyone follows Keirmet, and Keirmet has close friends. If a person becomes a close friend of Keirmet, the rest of the Krazies see to defer to them out of some sort of near-religious reverence. Keirmet is seen as nothing short of a god, as he encourages them to go forth and do as they will, promoting anarchy as a way of life. As a result, the slums are an ever-dangerous, eternal combat zone. There is a sort of hierarchy in the way that the Krazies mostly seem to get alone with each other, though the more powerful of them always eke out a better existence than the rest.
