Dark Lantern's Light
House Vadalis is a human dragonmarked house throughout Khorvaire though their main operation is centered in The Eldeen Reaches having migrated there almost 2,000 years ago. The house’s most significant trade is in the breeding and training of animals. House Vadalis is arguably the most innocuous of the dragonmarked houses. Its gifts do not win battles or drive the commerce of nations; the house was not instrumental in the Last War or in establishing the traditions of the houses. Its mark allows it to better care for and control animals; while useful, this ability is hardly the stuff of legend. Yet somehow, this inconspicuous house carries more than its share of controversy.
During the War of the Mark, it was rumored that House Vadalis bred arcane beasts so horrifying that they were later banned and destroyed. Valenar refuses to allow Vadalis heirs to even enter the country, and the house’s bonding of magic with nature alternately inspires wonder or hostility among the people of Khorvaire.
