House Betaran

One of a handful of Elven merchant families in Sel-kai, House Betaran is treated with a sort of grudging respect by other companies. They have cornered the lucrative coffee trade with the Shay of Lygar in northern Khûm-kaan (now under the control of Ardania)—much to the chagrin of House Alaxatan. Xyrus Betaran has also established ties with a group of the reclusive Shuluri living in Malqanar, securing a flow of the cherished pearls of that region, as well as the delicious oysters of the Bay of Songs rushed up by skyship.

House Members

  • Xyrus Betaran (b. 5720); Head of House.
