House Tharashk is a human and half-orc dragonmarked house that has just recently begun spreading throughout Khorvaire, though it is still heavily based in The Shadow Marches. The house is the second youngest. Its members are renowned prospectors, bounty hunters and inquisitives. Tharashk is the only house to hire monstrous laborers and mercenaries from Droaam, a nation they have an alliance with.
Around 1000 years ago the Mark of Finding made its first appearance on members of three Shadow Marches clans. The clans were the Torrns, The Velderans and the Aashtas. Word of master huntsmen from The Shadow Marches who possessed an unknown dragon mark soon spread throughout Khorvaire. In the late 600’s YK a group of House Sivis Gnomes decided to go in search of this dragon mark and upon discovering the three clans they helped them form House Tharashk.
Though new to the civilized world of the Five Nations and the rest of Khorvaire, Tharashk found its purpose relatively fast and adapted well. Being master hunters wasn’t enough to survive in this new world so upon learning of the high demand and value of Dragonshards, Tharashk decided to compete in trade and business. Dragonshard trade not only helped Tharashk earn its place in Khorvaire but created its wealth and influence. Despite this there are many who distrust Tharashk calling them “graybloods”.
When the Last War began Tharashk had little interest and intervention and the war was the same in return. The war had no effect on Tharashk’s trade as it occurred in the wilds and The Shadow Marches. The only times Tharashk was called upon was for search and rescue missions which felt more like a charity than business. The war finally came to Tharashk in its later stage though not in anyway they’d expect. The war led to the rise of Droaam as a nation and House Tharashk took advantage of this by negotiating trade deals and eventually an alliance.
