Right so I was pretty off with my first try, so I thought up something completely new.
NOTE: This is just the general idea of what I'm going for, so I'd appreciate comments on what to work on next.
Kabal of the Night Stalkers
The Kabal of the Night Stalkers has its roots all the way back in the founding of Commoragh. A warrior by the name of Gharr - one of the founding members of the dark city - joined the Kabal of the Black heart in the hopes of one day rising to the rank of Archon. She was a very promising warrior and through treachery and deceit she was able to climb all the way up to the rank of Dracon. After centuries had passed and the Kabal of the Black Heart had grown to be the most powerful kabal in the city, Gharr realized she could never rise above the great Asdrubael Vectl by herself. She saw that once she would have her own fighting force she could take on the Kabal of the Black Heart and become the most dominant Archon in Commoragh, so she left the Black Heart and formed the Kabal of the Night Stalkers.
In the beginning the kabal was only approximately 300 men strong, as only few had followed Gharr to form the Night Stalkers. As they were inferior in manpower, the Night Stalkers were easy prey to the other kabals of Commoragh. This meant that the Night Stalkers spent most of their time in hiding until they had captured, recruited or hired a force that was strong enough to survive in the city. Even though times were tough in the beginning, the Night Stalkers gained much experience in the field of stealth and night fighting during that time, which are the expertise that they are now named (and known) for.
As the Night Stalkers wish to gain strength over their fellow kin, they have adopted the ancient economic system of mercantilism. Slaves and other prizes are still sold to other kabals, but the majority of captured slaves/booty stays within the kabal, to ensure that imports from competitors can be minimized. This system allows the kabal to make profit on other kabals, while they in return get basically nothing. The use of mercantilism was thought up by Gharr, as she concluded that their future enemies had no need for their capital.

Actually, there wouldn't be much resistance to a coup. Dark Eldar base their society on survival of the fittest. If you can kill your superior, you can take his place. Most high-ranking Lords hire Incubi and even Mandrakes from outside the kabal for this very reason. You see, Incubi are bodyguards for hire hailing from the tutelage of Azrha, and Mandrakes are cannibalistic and will serve anyone who promises them enough kills.
It's not likely that any Dark Eldar kabal would ever sell their services to another race. They, like all the Eldar race, know themselves to be superior to the other races (with the possible exception of the C'tan). Killing mon-keigh, to them, is like burning ants with a magnifying glass. I'm sorry, but you'll have to find another way to make the Night Stalkers unique. Don't give up on it though. Perhaps you can find the inspiration for a story based on their cool name...
Check the 1st post.
Very cool. I like the new changes, and it seems to fit into character. Their origin as a lowly warrior from the Black Heart is a nice touch.
