Scion of Thuranni


Scion of Thuranni


Prerequisites: Mark of Shadow, Member of House Thuranni


  A house of assassins, the elf house of Thuranni is the newest of Khoirvaire’s dragonborn houses.   You likely still remember when your family was a branch of the House Phiarlan.  The split swept you to the cold north, where your house lives in stark conditions.  Many members of your families resent House Phiarlan for this and consider themselves to be the true heir of the Mark of Shadow.  You might agree with them.


    Ever since you were young, you were trained in the art of killing.  After your mark manifested, you became one of Thuranni’s young scions with the greatest potential for greatness.  However, no assassin gets to be the best by mere training, so you set out into the world to test your skills.  Do you embrace your life as a killer or do you secretly long for a more peaceful existence?  The way before you is dark and shaded, but you don;t mind.  The shadows are your closest friends.
