Mowali is the most recently-settled by the empire. That, coupled with the history of the ruins, gives it the reputation of a fairly lawless place. It is true that this island does have a large population of pirates and smugglers, and that the capital, Bloodcove, is essentially run by pirates. The ancient people of this island worshiped daemons, creatures from the plane of Abbadon who hunger for souls. They are also known for using the animus of the souls of slaves to power strange machines and weird technologies.
