They are led by the Argonian Jaree-Ra and his sister, Deeja, and are located at the Wreck of The Icerunner and Broken Oar Grotto. In the past, they were a fleet of pirates, but turned to marauding after a cave-in trapped their ships in the grotto.
They are involved in the quest "Lights Out!", given in Solitude. Jaree-Ra will ask for the Dragonborn's help in causing a ship to wreck near the coast, so it can be looted by him and his gang. Ahtar will also give a quest to kill one of their leaders at Broken Oar Grotto as well.
- The members (excluding the Argonian siblings) wear a unique warpaint that is not available in Character Creation; it is a black tattoo, with a design consisting of blood veins running up their necks to the sides of their heads, adding to the name "Blackblood."
