Scion of Sivis

Scion of Sivis

Prerequisites: Mark of Scribing, Member of House Sivis

   One of the oldest dragonmarks is held by the shrewdest of houses, House Sivis.  The diminutive yet potent gnomes of House Sivis have survived for millenniums by manipulating the world around them though diplomacy and calculation.  They have developed a well deserved reputation as negotiators and their services are the only way that many citizens of Khorvaire can communicate instantly across the plane.

   As a member of House Sivis, these traits have been bred into you since childhood.  Manifesting your dragonmark only increased your abilities as a negotiator and a sage.  Yet you were not content to stay in a Sivis enclave and play the complex game of house politics.  Something drew you out into the world to actively seek your fortune.  You proceed into your new life with calm calculation and a knowledge that has sustained your people for so long.
