aughty and arrogant, the Chanteurs prided themselves on being the ones who brought music to the Underworld. With an artistic hubris exceeding even the Masquers’, they hired themselves out as troubadours to the Restless’ elite. Even after the Guild’s revolt, individual Chanteurs retained influence and access to the high and mighty of Stygia. The Stygian nobles would do anything for such potent diversion, and for centuries the Chanteurs were deemed to be one of the few “acceptable” entertainments in certain social circles. Even today, many wraiths search out Chanteurs to feel the depth of mortal emotion once more.

All Chanteurs play a musical instrument of some kind; even those who perform a Capella use noisemakers or rhythm-keepers such as finger cymbals, castanets, or drumsticks.
