Vassal of Thalerith
Sigil: Two bloody axes crossed before a burning sun
Words: Through Strength, Victory
The elf that came to be known as the Butcher of Nashari, is the founder of the Filinnar family. Known for his proficiency with the axe, he was a renowned warrior and military leader in the Armies of the First Kingdom, often pairing with another warrior named Augustus, the father of House Tenlindil in the Lorandin Kinship. During the First Migration, Filinnar convinced many of his men and women to leave with him and his siblings, something that Augustus never forgave him for. Those soldiers were as much family to Filinnar as his real siblings, and they became the foundation of his House. Members of the family often honor its tradition by becoming proficient warriors, but some also often go on to become Flame Seers, hoping to maintain the glory of the Filinnar alive in the Thalerith oral history.

Deep within the caverns of the Scorching Expanse is an underground oasis. Discovered in 51 PA, Moya Falls is a beautiful underground waterfall. In August of 52 PA, Warlord Sylindra broke grown and established a stone keep that reaches both below desert sands and above ground keeping the precious water source safe. It is being called the Jewel of the Expanse by those who visit the newly founded settlement.
An escarpment of semi-arid cliffs marks the southeastern edge of the Scorching Expanse, with grasses, shrubs, and small trees springing up between the rocky elevations. There the stone keep Victory Bluffs was established in late winter of 53 PA by House Filinnar. The structure itself is built high up into the rocks of the plateau overlooking the sahel below, making it particularly well fortified. Rumor has it that the Oracle of Rithor dwells near by, marking this location as especially strategic and holy to those who worship the Warrior Deity.
There has been build a stone keep at Basilsk Canyon that takes the shape of a huge natural rock bridge over the chasm. It uses black stones from the canyon walls to build a dark keep guarding the foreboding location. Imposing gatehouses crowned with tall obsidian spires rise up from the canyon walls to meet each end of the bridge. In honour of the two Filinnar men who died fighting the fearsome Basilisk, one has been named Ringith's Gate and the other Terrion's Gate, that their sacrifice never be forgotten.
