Welcome back to Shattered Wings Thursdays, the weekly feature of art related to The House of Shattered Wings. 5 days to release of the Roc hardcover edition (and 7 days to the Gollancz trade paperback). Eep. Almost there!
Today: last of the magical factions (well, at least those I have space for :p)
The Houseless are, strictly speaking, not a faction, because the term covers a lot of people. The Houses might like to think themselves the centre of the city, but the truth is that many people find a living outside them: they range from people unaffiliated to Houses who nevertheless serve them, to shopkeepers in the city, to the workers that work in what remains of the factories; down to the gangs who run in droves around the Grands Magasins, hunting anything and anyone to survive.
Notable Houseless characters: Aragon (doctor employed as freelancer by House Silverspires), Philippe (Annamite unaffiliated to a House), Ninon (member of the Red Mambas Gang), Jacques Rossigny (informant of House Silverspires).
