Duke Santagar Harrow

Santagar Harrow is a powerful Iskari noble and the ruler of the large Cyrendari seaport of Natharos.

House of Harrow

The noble family of Harrow is among the oldest and most prestigious in the Kingdom of Cyrendar. Its lineage goes back to the Iskari Empire on Iskandar, and the family can easily lay claim to a heritage dating "Back to the Boats," as the Iskari proverb goes. For over a thousand years, the Harrow family has controlled the City of Natharos and, because of that control, become the wealthiest noble family in Cyrendar. Indeed there is an old saying; "The Harrows don't need to rule Cyrendar, they can simply buy it."

House Harrow has always harbored resentment toward the Crown; for on several occasions, their family was denied a seat on the Onyx Throne. Most recently, after the death of King Ilathrin II during the War of Crows, Lord Meraxas Harrow strongly maneuvered to take the throne for himself; but because of political infighting and old rivalries, the Crown was given to the House of Brevald and Istavar anointed King. The Harrow family took this as a grave insult to their honor and lineage, because House Brevald was a far younger noble house, and held none of the prestige and long, distinguished history of House Harrow.

The Harrows have brooded upon this with bitter resentment to this very day. In fact, this resentment led Santagar's eldest son; Telghar to leave home at age seventeen and join the Grey Watchers. Father and son are estranged to this very day.
