High Stakes - A Whedonverse Campaign
La Sombre, better known as the cartel, are a Mexican crime family operating in LA, primarily interested in the drug trade.
They aligned heavily with the Archosians following the decline of Wolfram and Hart (and by extension, the Alfredo family fronted by Gill)
Following the assassination of the Archosians their troops took to the streets and started open warfare.
Their leader, Arturo, went into hiding soon after and his current whereabouts are unknown. His remaining captains struggle to retain even a small sliver of territory.
