The Circle of Thorns is a demon cabal within the Southern Horde which formed after the death of Duke Hepnaz L'invrad. It wishes to dethrone the horde's current Duchess Nina Heeate L'andariel because the members aren't pleased by her being from the rival Eastern Horde who in their view is using the South as nothing but a pawn in East's politics.
