The Tutors are a cabal of slavers and probable Heretics who fled to Footfall long ago and have made it their primary centre for their business — the acquisition, re-moulding, and selling of the finest and most specialised human slaves available. Cruel and methodical slavers, the Tutors use a variety of methods within their fastness of the Red Schola to break and then educate slaves to be sold as tongueless savants, spies, bodyguards, and ritual torturers.
The Provisor is a member of the sinister slaver group known as the Tutors. The Provisor is the intermediary through which most that have dealings with the masters of the Red Schola come to an arrangement. A disturbing figure, the features of the Provisor’s face are pushed out of place by the tubing of life-preserving bionics which snake all around his body, swathed in dark grey robes hemmed with deepest red. The Provisor is calculating, scrupulous to a fault in business dealings, and utterly ruthless when the opportunity arises to exploit the oversights of others. More than one potential slave owner has failed to carefully plan his transaction with the Tutors and been enslaved and broken for his carelessness.
