The people of the Southern Ruby Kingdom are perhaps the
most secretive in Oz. Their land is a myriad of textures and seasons
and people. Indeed, there is little about the southern land that is
consistent. Little, but it's inhabitants, the Quads.
The Quads are known for their abilities as assassins and spies. Their
talents are renowned. Their honor impeccable. And their tongues
are sealed to the world around them. The Quad can only speak in a
whisper, or in poetry, or in riddles to the world around them. Their
voices are their greatest ally and the bane of their allies. For just
as great as their secrets, gathered from the world around them and the
spirits of the victims, their vengeance is not to be toyed with.
For many, the last word they hear is the subtle laughter of a Quadling.
