Magatha revealed to him the location of the gladiator Lo'Gosh. Later on the assassin was killed during a fight with Valeera Sanguinar in Dustwallow Marsh; his demise caused by a tarantula who's web he got caught in.[3] He owned an ebon gryphon named Blackklaw.[4]

Speculation

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

It is currently unknown whether the guild is another name for SI:7, or its subgroup or another group.

Before the de-canonization of the RPG books, given the fact that the guild operated in Stormwind, it is possible that both, the item and the comic mentions of the guild were originally meant to refer to the Stormwind Assassins which was apparently meant to be the background for the SI:7.

Alternatively, it could be an alternate name for the Assassin's League or its subgroup.

As per the words of Sean Copeland, unofficially, they appear to be a separate group from SI:7, but there might be some interplay between the two groups.[5]
