History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Anticipating the Kforuzeng would disband, Tukera Lines encouraged a major group to split off in 1115, and transferred its dealings for protection to them. The relationship between the Ethueng and Tukera is remarkably close. The Ethueng prey on other Imperial traders in Vargr space competing with Tukera, particularly Oberlindes Lines.

Non-canon: The Ethueng were induced in the Antebellum period by Tukera Lines into forming their own seperate corsair band, with generous Tukera support of course. After Tukera collapsed, the band almost broke apart in the face of renewed Kforuz attacks. But then the band was rescued by an unknown benefactor, and its members were funneled into a set of trojan horse businesses in Pretoria subsector during the 1130s and 40s, only to reemerge as a core part of the new Vargr Pack in the 1150s. The Ethueng handle all of the Udheg's major financial transactions, and provide banking services for individual Goenghoedz.

The group is highly secretive, and its membership is of unknown origin. All Ethueng seem to be recruited in their youth, and spend about fifteen to twenty years in training and indoctrination. No Ethueng member will surrender under interrogation or torture, and all will carry a method of suicide on their person. Among other Pack Members, they are referred to as the "Talking Moneybags" because of their quiet professionalism, for they do most of their talking through their actions rather than direct communication. Regency police call them "Ghost Dogs" for their ability to disappear or fade out of sight. Killing or robbing an Ethueng courier will always trigger intervention by either the Fuernuzorg or Thengkfelluer hit squads.
