Prior to the Thrackos Scandal the Traitor's Gate was the main entrance to the Blodsburg Hive. After its recapture it was renamed the Illiad Gate in honour of the two captains who took it: Hector of the Twelvers and Achilles of the Raven Guard.

Despite its official name being changed, it remains the Traitor's Gate in common parlance, and is frequently the site of duels between the various bravos common to the cities factions.
