Fire & Flood
House Cannith in Sharn is led by Baron Merrix d’Cannith (Lawful Evil Human male, artificer 9/Dragonmark heir 3).
The patriarch of the southern branch of the family, he operates a secret forge in the cogs, turning out new warforged (rumored to be some of a new, magic wielding variety). The operation is secretly being run by a mysterious old and eccentric human dragonmark who goes by the name of Ferris Mars. Even while being patriarch of the house, would rather retreat to the cogs to work on his secret projects than attend to House business but as patriarch he feels the obligation to push the house to its former greatness, and support New Cyre in general. There are rumors that d’Cannith plans to challenge for the overall leadership of House Cannith, if only for lack of confidence in its current leaders.
Merrix, father of Sophie d’Cannith, is also married to Murielle ir’Dain, sister to the Cyrian ambassador to Breland Jairan ir’Dain (LG Male Human Aristocrat 6) as well as Sophie’s three aunts, Margot, Madilyn, and Meriette, once influential aristocrats in their own right in Cyre, who are trying to rebuild the legacy of the family and Cyre in general. Margot (CN Female Human Aristocrat 4) in particular puts much pressure on Meriel, and Merrix by extension, to help in this endeavor. Meriel, Sophie’s mother and Merrix’s wife, prefers to keep quiet on the matter.
