Portrait Dusk.png

The duty of the Dusk clan of Nuqrah'shareh is singular and simple: to guard against nether forces. This commitment of theirs takes overbearing precedence over all else. Duskians are famously neutral in regard to outside matters; politics do not concern them, race is unimportant, alliances and clans rise and fall to their indifference. But should the risk of demonic threats so much as appear as a blip on their radars they will respond with zealous ardor. (read more)

Portrait Siyah'khorshed.png

The Siyah’khorshed, also known under the moniker of the Black Suns, cannot be accurately defined as a singular clan or race. The Siyah’khorshed is composed of numerous loosely-affiliated nomadic tribes of raiders and mercenaries that wander the underworld, preying on caravans and travelers to survive. They are considered a scourge by many and the primary threat to travelers who venture beyond their cities’ walls. (read more)

Portrait Val'Dutan'vir.png

The Val'Dutan'vir were shining examples of order in the years before the onset of the Nidraa'chal uprising. They were valuable, unwavering allies of the Vel'Sharen and loyal protectors of the Val'Sharess in a day when racial differences were of little consequence. It was to the loss of nearly everyone when they fell during the uprising, the clan members slipping in among the commoners or sold into slavery and their name forever tainted unjustly by the ignorant populace.

Portrait Nidraa'chal.png

What began as a small clan of demon summoners transformed quickly into one of the greatest threats Chel'el'sussoloth had ever faced. The Nidraa'chal are a faction preaching the superiority of their tainted race, bearing the terrible ability to effectively tap their expanded potential. Though small in number they single-handedly plunged the city of Chel'el'sussoloth into chaos, tore the traditional laws of clan warfare asunder and forever changed the political and cultural climate of the city. (read more)

Portrait Vel'Sharen.png

Rulers among rulers, the Vel’Sharen have lorded as Chel’el’sussoloth’s dominant clan for nearly the city’s entire existence. Its Val bloodline controls not only the clan itself but also legislates the workings of the rest of the city. Yet unbridled political power breeds both enemies and greater desires. The conspiracies that run through the Sharen are unparalleled by any others in scale or magnitude. Everything is a pawn in their eyes, but lately these pawns have begun to fight back... (read more)

Portrait Vel'Vloz'ress.png

Every volatile and evil stereotype of the drow can be found manifest within the Vel’Vloz’ress. Often called mad by even their own peers they are a force of unbridled chaos within the underworld, experimenting with demonic energies with little regard for the repercussions. While brought to prominence through entirely outside means, many see them as harbingers of another demonic incursion and maybe even the downfall of Chel'el'sussoloth itself.Long after the rise of the Vel'Vloz'ress as one of the Nine Great Clans, Kiel'ndia Vel'Vloz'ress, motivated by a personal promise, moves to take back her clan after the death of Sene'kha Vel'Vloz'ress. Sene'kha's followers are swiftly deposed, but Kiel's tenuous hold will only be maintained by her control of her sister, Ill'haress Kharla'ggen Vel'Vloz'ress. (read more)

Portrait Val'Sullisin'rune.png

The Val’Sullisin’rune is a clan enveloped in intrigue shrouded by a thin veil of serendipity. It is one of only two known Chelian clans that remain in the wake of the the great wars, retaining a seat of power among the Vals and Vels since the city's founding. They are master diplomats and political manipulators infamous for the numerous empaths that fill their ranks. Though more than hospitable to many other clans, few if any know of the schemes brewing among its individuals. (read more)

Portrait Val'Kyorl'solenurn.png

Purity, discipline and zeal: these are the calling cards of the Val’Kyorl’solenurn, the only remaining Val drowussu clan. Indoctrinated at birth, clan members are brought up to actively despise and purge impurities from Chel'el'sussoloth and the world. Nothing draws their hatred more than demonic influences, making them the bane of the tainted Vel clans. To be in their favor is to find security and compassion; to embrace the profane is to be given no quarter. (read more)

Portrait Val'Jaal'darya.png

Easily the most enigmatic of the clans of Chel'el'sussoloth, the Jaal’darya are powerful and knowledgeable biological engineers. They are well known for the living weapons and artificial life forms that they create and trade, but the clan members themselves are notoriously secretive and rarely seen. Those very few who are privy to the happenings behind the clan’s closed doors however know that nothing is sacred in the face of the Jaal’darya’s experimental drive, not even their own bodies. (read more)

Portrait Val'Illhar'dro.png

The Val’Illhar’dro are the mercantile kingpins of the Underworld. Theirs is an empire of trade that touches nearly every settlement, affording them enough power to hold a seat among the Vals of Chel'el'sussoloth without being headquartered within the city. Their resolute stance on peace, often embellished by their infamous spellsongs, melts the social barriers and binds the alliances that allow their network to spread and prosper with but minimal bloodshed. (read more)

Unrivaled in the fields of business practices and interspecies interaction, The Nal’sarkoth are a dominate supplier of goods and services to Chel'el'sussoloth. By fostering lasting relationships with the goblin empires above and remaining dwarven kingdoms below they have commanding access to the valuable resources these ties provide them. They are equally unique for their army of goblin mercenaries that live beside them in their fortress. (read more)

Portrait Val'Beldrobbaen.png

Specters of days past who watch events from above, the Beldrobbaen are a clan far past their prime. Their numbers and influence have dwindled dramatically since their time of greatness through disasters, lost wars and social change. Though weakened they maintain their defiant grip on their Val title, standing tall against the waves of change so intent on sweeping them away and hoping for a day when they may recover from the tragedies that so consistently befall them.
