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 scion of the House, 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

Main Branch

  • Iliaru Massalan: Patriarch (Rank 10) • 55 years. The lord of House Massalan has a reputation as a man with great focus and patience in his jewelry-work, but who is also enormously self-centered. He has never taken a consort, nor even a paramour to anyone's knowledge. He has no real confidants save his own family, and spends most of his hours at his work bench. It is believed that his collection of jewelry must be the greatest in all of Waterdeep and possibly even in the North, given the resources of his House and his utter disinterest in selling any of his pieces.
  • Limia Massalan: Patriarch's Sister (Rank 5) • 46 years. Gregarious where Iliaru is quiet, Limia is widely regarded as eloquent and reasonable, often serving as a neutral party in quarrels among her peers. Like her brother, she has never married, although she has taken many lovers over the years, even having several children by them, but raising them in House Massalan without the first clue as to the identity of their fathers - just the way she likes it.
  • Phorol Massalan: Heir; Patriarch's Nephew (Rank 6) • 27 years. Limia's oldest is the heir of House Massalan and - by all appearances - will likely one day inherit the House. His mother despairs of preparing him for that role, though - Phorol is candid to the point of insulting and foolish, and prone to violent outbursts. More than a few of the Massalan household staff have brought charges against Phorol; his mother and uncle always pay to make sure things go away.

Other Branches

Laithe Massalan
Patriarch's Cousin (Rank 1) • 36 years
Something of an outsider in polite society, Laithe revels in her near-outsider status. She heaps contempt on Waterdhavian noble society at every turn, and is infamous for her cruelly truthful tongue. She is also known as something of a glory hound, loving nothing more than being in the limelight with a spiteful exchange of insults with someone of importance. She talks long into the night about her desire for freedom, but most assume she is simply a profoundly unhappy woman that takes it out on other people.
