The Exigicency Programme was a group of mages led by Thurid Guild during the War. They were assigned to dirty jobs such as sabotages. Guild had tried to recruit Skulduggery Pleasant and Ghastly Bespoke, but they refused.

Esryn Vanguard’s Assassination

As The War raged on with seemingly no end in site a mage by the name of Esryn Vanguard emerged. He was a pacifist who believed that Mevolent and his followers of The Faceless Ones should be allowed to exist in peace. Mevolent was willing to have peace but Eachan Meritorious wasn't. He secretly ordered Vanguard to be killed. Thurid Guild offered one of his men from The Exigency Programme to assassinate Vanguard. After successfully assassinating Vanguard, Guild orchestrated the evidence to point to one of Mevolent's men, Dreylan Scarab. Dreylan was falsely accused of the murder and subsequently imprisoned for 200 years.
