House Illance was a noble house of Cormyr based in Suzail.

HoldingsEdit

Although the family was based in Suzail it had deep roots in Marsember and owned many properties through a complicated web of small companies bearing the names of others.[1] The family owned a palatial home in Marsember known as "Iyrinthorn",[2] and a summer house at Stag Well.[3]

ReputationEdit

The family's menfolk were notorious womanizers and were frequent patrons of Mask Dancing clubs.[4] The family was involved in some illicit dealings,[3] and persistent local rumors of ongoing slaving operations using their Marsembian based vessels and warehouses plagued the family.[1]

The House was an enemy of the House Cormaeril.[5]

HistoryEdit

Some members of the family plotted with Luthax against King Draxius in 629 DR[6] and several unnamed members fought with King Galaghard III against the Witch-Lords in 900 DR. [7] House Illance was among those who fought with Arangor and Azoun II against the dragon Thauglor in 1018 DR. [8] One of its houses in Suzail was destroyed during a red dragon attack in 1018 DR.[9] House Illance slowly lost influence at the Royal Court over generations, and weak family leaders poorly managed and invested the family fortune, but the family was never in ruin.[10] By 1479 DR the family's fortunes had improved through deals with the Seven Suns Trading Company.[4]
