I have always wondered. . . Why can't the syndicate have "Clans" and just call em organizations or something? Outlaws are already deprived of so much. village regen and anbu's but have their own pluses like banking anywhere and foraging for food.
but i think they should have clans too. criminals can band together in their own groups. who know it may make syndicate more active instead of a stop place for people getting DC
not like syndie clans would throw off balance
