Narthel was the youngest scion of the Harlhaun family and was in quiet competition with his older brother Lariond for prominence in the family, hoping to become the next leader of the clan.

Observing the finer points of etiquette hid their true feelings from everyone, but Narthel attempted to subvert Lariond's ambitions and Lariond returned in kind.
