Meili's Guide to Tourism among the Svartalfr: House Arken'arn
Ah, House Arken’arn, the hotheads of the Erelhei-Cinlu. This house specializes in fire magic, which they have taken to devastating new depths of depravity. House Arken’arn isn’t quite as good at diplomacy in the normal, mysterious way of the svartalfr, however the healthy fear that they inspire tends to work nearly as well. As a society that values appearances, the ability of House Arken’arn to devastate your appearance through their fire magic.
One of the most notable things about House Arken’arn is their sense of humor: They have one. It’s terrible, and twisted, but it’s there, and less restrained than svartalfr usually keep it. One theory that is occasionally floated around is that this particular house takes more after Hel’s father, Loki, than they do after Hel herself (This author cannot be held responsible for the death, torture, or immolation of anyone who suggests this to House Arken’arn.)
