The Blackwood bank meanwhile is far more sinister allowing the user to take out a loan for the character provided they are C-rank or higher, this comes at a cost with them needing to pay back the loan in full plus 50% tax within four weeks otherwise, the bank will both maim and individual before taking something of the equivalent value it could be anything from an item to a companion or even more body parts to compensate. If the loan isn't paid off two weeks post that initial maiming then the character will be hunted down and killed.

The money gained from either bank can not be used together i.e have money transferred from another individual to pay off another person's loan or have money loaned transferred to another individual.
