The Frozen City
Famous for its military leadership and martial prowess, House Khatru is made up entirely of headstrong warriors and fighters. Most believe them to be arrogant, self-righteous warmongers and that opinion isn’t far from the truth.
Members of the Khatru family are poorly equipped to hide their nature even if they wanted to. They have no respect for spellcasters or rogues: only for those who live by the skill and strength of their sword arm. To Khatru, might makes right . . . and they have the most might.
House Khatru possesses its own private army, numbering around a hundred extremely well-trained troops. Almost to a man, these solders also belong to the Order of Iron Might. House Khatru does not hesitate to use this army if needed, putting them at the city’s disposal in times of crisis as well as in private disputes.
Although they have neither the time nor the patience for religion, the members of Khatru have regretted the Church’s abolition of the Edict of Deviltry ever since it happened some eighty years ago. They think of all arcanists as cowards at best, and diabolists at worst. Even most clerics, in their eyes, are likely misguided, weak in their hearts and overly dependent on others, even if the others in question are in fact gods.
Lord Dorant Khatru is the current master of the house.
