Scion of Cannith

Scion of Cannith

Prerequisite: Membership in House Cannith, Mark of Making feat

   House Cannith is the bearer of the Mark of Making and the home of some of the best crafters and artificers in Khorvaire.  You have been surrounding by artistry, engineering, and magic since your earliest days.  As you grew, you discovered that you too had a great talent for creation, which only blossomed further upon the manifesting of your dragonmark.  Your dragonmark also brought you great status within your house.  Are you a crafter at heart or do you long to see the things you build go to use?

    House Cannith had a large enclave in Cyre before the Day of Mourning.  You may have lost friends, family and a home.  How did you avoid being caught in the Mourning?  Do you long for closure on what happened?  The Day of Mourning also left Cannith a house divided.  Which of your family do you follow?  Are you actively involved in the politics of the house, or do you distance yourself from them?  Each scion of Cannith must make his own path.
