Arlen Thorne had a high position before Kelsea Glynn's arrival in New London. He was responsible for a good transition of the Shipment from New London to Mortmesne. He is a very dangerous thinker, always trying to find an inventive way to achieve his goals. He is also an important player on the black market in New London, so even after his 'dismissal' by Kelsea he still accumulates great amounts of money and goods. After the fight his slave-convoy had against the Queen's Guard, he gets wounded and recovers at an unknown place. Some say he is also the brain behind the assaults on the Queen's life in The Keep.
