The Nacred were a family of Wizards that lived in the Country of Sweeps, some hundred miles West of the Temple of Travellers' Repose. They had been part of a bitter and bloody feud with a rival family of Wizards called the Shaded. This had played out for at least three generations by the time of Toadkiller Dog's arrival during the events in The Silver Spike.

The Silver Spike[]

After the Wicker Man's defeat at Traveller's Repose at the hands of the New White Rose Rebellion, Toadkiller Dog travelled west to seek help in creating a new body for the wizard.[1] After reaching Sweeps and finding the warring families, he assessed the two factions and decided the Nacred were best suited for his plan. He struck a bargain with them and brutally massacred the Shaded, wiping them out to the last man, woman and child. The twelve leaders of the Nacred then travelled back to Traveller's Repose as promised, and helped construct a new clay body for the Wicker Man. This involved sacrificing one of the Temple's monks in a ritual. However, shorty after achieving this he betrayed both them and Toadkiller Dog, trapping them in the ruins under rubble. Only the demon emerged to exact his revenge, having eaten the rest of the Nacred wizards.
