The Iron Challengers
The Iron Challengers are a mercenary company. The company started in the city of Hill Port, back when it belonged to Der’she, hiring out as guards for caravans and on merchant ships. When Dara and Der’she began fighting over the territory including Hill Port, the Iron Challengers took on minor contracts with Der’she to work as guerrilla fighters. They began to grow in numbers, and moved their headquarters to Border Hold, inside Der’she territory, and began fighting alongside the regular army, eventually helping Der’she to win back the territory around Hill Port, at least for a time. Around that time, the island nation of Chula was founded, and the Iron Challengers were offered a major commission to provide permanent security for the island.
