    The __ Company was a minor mercenary faction that began to operate in the Imperial province of Cyrodiil, out of the city Leyawiin, during the latter days of the Third Era, and simultaneous to the Oblivion Crisis.With its origins in Black Marsh and comprised almost exclusively of Beastfolk, the Company for a while emerged as a notorious yet effective rival and threat to the Cyrodiilic chapter of the Fighters Guild, at one point coming dangerously close to tearing the Guild asunder. Despite successful and profitable early years, they fell into notoriety after committing such criminal behaviour as ritual drug abuse, property damage and even indiscriminate killings, including that of citizenry and Fighters Guild members.This reckless band of mercenaries was infiltrated by the Hero of Kvatch on behalf of the Fighters Guild in 3E 433. Upon discovering the dangerous secret source of their strength, the Hero of Kvatch destroyed the machine which was extracting the sap from a sick Hist tree, and the entire faction along with it.
