The Krum are one of the Vikan VI cartels. They are the newest of the major powers, having supplanted the Shin Agency some 40 years prior. The Krum are an alliance of major gang powers in the underhive regions of Vikan VI. They lack the large-scale manufacturing complexes of the Valadrin Conglomerate, but use their myriad small scale manufactorae to create firearms and personal armor. They also forge small quantities of luxury items and repair components, infringing slightly on the domain of the other two cartels. Their criminal status includes the employment of large numbers of mutants, as well as unsanctioned psykers. The Krum hold the only one of the 4 spaceports not possessed by the Aud family.
