For the political group in Beryl, see Reds

Red was a thug working for Krage, a prominent gangster in the Buskin, the most downtrodden slum of the city of Juniper, during Shadows Linger. Red was missing at least three of his teeth and was known to torment Krage's victims for fun.

Shadows Linger[]

Red accompanied his counterpart, the hulking Count, and their boss Krage to confront Marron Shed at the Iron Lily to extort money from him. While the thugs roughed up Shed, they found a silver coin on his person. It had been given to him moments earlier by his best customer, Raven, to purchase firewood from Latham. But Krage ignored this and claimed Shed was holding out on him. Raven affirmed Shed's story, and when Red went to strike him, Raven busted his wrist. Krage ordered Count to attack Raven, but the man tumbled over in shock when Raven calmly pulled his infamous trick: a wicked dagger appeared in his hand from seemingly nowhere. Krage left with his men but warned Shed he must pay him.

Later, Krage and Red cornered the homeless man Asa and threatened him if he did not spy on Shed for them. After this, Red is not mentioned again in the Annals by name. He may have been one of the 7 unnamed men Raven and Shed killed off leading up to, and during, the final confrontation with Krage.
