The very first novel in the series begins with giving a brief history of the main character Vlad Taltos and the first novel explains of how he was bonded his Jhereg familiar, Loiosh. Despite his descent of being an Easterner from the Dragaeran city of Adrilankha, Vlad turns out to be a minor boss in the criminal activities of the Jhereg Organization. In other words his is a mobster. One day Vlad is approached by an extremely powerful and important member of the Organization's head Council that makes all of the decisions and offered Vlad an assassination job. This job ended up having a staggeringly large reward once it was completed. This contract was to kill another Jhereg crime lord named Mellar, who had inherited a fortune from the Jhereg treasury. Of course Vlad accepts. Vlad's other friends named Sethra Lavode and Aliera e'Kieron , offer their help since they really have no care about the aspect of morality. Aliera actually wants to kill Mellar herself. This is because though it is already obvious to everyone present including Morrolan himself, knows that Mellar used Morrolan and used his Dragonlord's honor as a shield to be protected against the Jhereg. Aliera knows that this was a grave insult to the House of the Dragon. The oldest and wisest of the group named Sethra does agree with Aliera's position. However he feels that they must still respect Morrolan's wishes no matter how ridiculous they sound and they must find a way that they will not violate his honor.
