Meili's Guide to Tourism among the Svartalfr: House Darlaxlo
There isn’t much that can be said about House Darlaxlo, at least within their hearing. This house manages to exemplify the dangerous mystery of the svartalfr. Incredibly secretive and clever, House Darlaxlo has cast its shadow over every aspect of Erelhei-Cinlu (both figuratively and literally.) It’s unlikely to find someone who isn’t beholden to this house, whether through favors or fear.
Well versed in shadow magic and necromancy, this House is believed to be especially devout in their worship of the goddess Hel. As a result, it isn’t uncommon to find undead wandering their complex, both former dark elves and the husks of those taken in batte. The house is also very fond of dealing with trespassers, or those that they believe insulted them, the same way (Disclaimer: This author cannot be held responsible for any death, torture, and undeath that results from interaction with the House Darlaxlo).
Motto: “Everything casts a shadow.”
