Faction Ranks
Favored: Rank 1. You are a favored member of the House. If you are a scion of the House, you have pleased the patriarch sufficiently to gain his notice. If you are an agent or retainer of the House, your efforts to aid the House have gone well-noted.

Lynchpin: Rank 3. You are given a position of some responsibility in the House's operations. If you are a Husteem, the patriarch considers you one of the favored scions of the House, and consults with you on matters of House importance. If you are an agent or retainer, your contributions and skills in service of the House have won you a position of no small regard and respect in the patriarch's eyes - although that may earn you the jealousy of his blood kin who are less favored than you.

Members of the Family

  • Lord Challas Amcathra: Patriarch • 87 years. This aging noble was once one of the up-and-coming adventurers of the Sword Coast, but this ended when he inherited the Amcathra lordship at age 26 (plagues and tavern brawls killed his six elder brothers). He married Miri two years later, and they've been quite happy ever since; his family of nine children and a handful of grandchildren is a great point of pride to him.
  • Miri Amcathra: Consort • 87 years. Amcathra's beloved and the busy, bustling mother of the whole Amcathra clan. In her day she was a revered beauty in Waterdeep's society, and many of the great women of Waterdeep's nobility still remember her kind words and encouragement of them when they were but girls.
  • Arilos Amcathra: Heir • Patriarch's Firstborn • 51 years. Heir to the Amcathra lordship, Arilos never rests on his privileges and accomplishments, and is constantly compelled to do his best at whatever he tries. Currently, he is the member rumored to be the next Guild Master of the Stablemasters' and Farriers' Guild, and Belihands Masker publicly praises and endorses this middle-aged man for his industriousness.
  • Regnet Amcathra: Arilo's Secondborn • 22 years. Regnet, the second son of Arilos, is a popular and well known man about town. Famed for his tastes in clothes and drink, he has friends and acquaintances (and not a few enemies) in nearly every tavern in town.
  • Mourngrym Amcathra: Patriarch's Ninthborn • 31 years. Mourngrym was made Lord of Shadowdale when its previous Lord, Doust Sulwood, retired. He has rallied the Dalefolk of Shadowdale against the enemies they jointly face, a great point of pride for his Waterdhavian family.

Other Branches

  • Senna Amcathra: Patriarch's niece (Rank 1) • 16 years. Prim but competitive, Senna has taken to life as an adult in Waterdhavian society with fervor. She has gained a reputation as a bit of a secret keeper, setting herself into gossip circles quite readily. She is also the target of some of that gossip herself: she has made no secret of the fact that she has a paramour, but will not speak their name or identity.
