House of Taskerhill

The House of Taskerhill; a wealthy, aristocratic Ralani family, can trace their lineage back to the Founders of Caldera, over seven centuries ago. The Taskerhills claim to have had ancestors present who aided Surabar the Spellmason in the defeat of the Demon-Lord Nabthatoron and paved the way for the founding of their city. One of Surabar's original five companions was Bryon Taskerhill.

The Taskerhills are renowned for their wit, beauty, and artistic talents. They embody the outward ideal of the aristocrat in every way, exhibiting charm, courtesy, and generosity towards the lower classes. Indeed, the Taskerhills are popular in every sector of Caldera society. Only those who are allowed to get very close to members of the family realize that, underneath their patina of grace, they tend to be calculating and ego maniacal. The Taskerhill family also has substantial holdings in the city of Sasserine. The Sasserine branch of the family owns a massive lumber mill, providing them with enormous wealth and power. That branch of the family is led by Andros' older brother Kalmadar.
