The Duskmasks are the guard of the Dusk Lords, the 18 leaders of Dusken Trade City. In ages past when Dusken was founded it was the province of slaver warlords. When the tradesmen decided to use their money and power to work against these they were threatened and killed. For this reason the Dusk Lords gave their guards anonymity by allowing them to wear masks which hid their identity. This way the Duskmasks loyalty could not be undermined by threats to their loved ones.
Today the Duskmasks identities are hidden not by simple masks but magical ones with a glamour on them. So it is almost impossible to know which Duskmask is which.
