House Tharandon of The White Keep is one of the Noble Houses of the Hapes Consortium, one of its richest, most powerful families and oldest dynasties, with the second largest military of all other Houses in the Cluster. Fair-haired, tall, and handsome, the Tharandons are a cadet branch of the long extinct ancient House Melantha, boasting a direct line of descent from Rhel of Tharandon some sixteen hundred years previously.

House Tharandon had fallen on hard times following the death of Lord Alexander, but has since been restored to its former glory by his son and current Lord Tharandon, Benedict.

House Tharandon's Heraldry consists of the sigil of a rampant crimson Griffon on a field of black and their motto "Steadiness Calls The Faithful Ones". Their unofficial motto, which is as well known as the official one, is "A Tharandon Never Forgets" and is used much more often and mostly in negative context, though it can also be used in the original, literal sense. Members of the family tend to have golden hair and emerald green eyes.



The Tharandons first appeared in Hapanii historical records roughly sixteen hundred years ago. An offshoot cadet branch of House Melantha, they were granted the title of Lords of Selab and accompanying lands.
