Under Maglubiyet's Thumb
House Talekris is one of the six tiefling merchant houses of Aries Kraul. Though Talekris is not the most powerful merchant house in the city, they make a name for themselves as the most prolific tomb raiders and excavators in Aries Kraul. House Talekris has more relics and artifacts from the city’s Turathi ruins.
Takelris does have plenty of merchandise to buy and sell. But their primary focus remains on uncovering new secrets within Aries Kraul’s old ruins, moreso than any other merchant house. Some say they work for a dark master with special information regarding the old Turathi city. Others think they simply know how to specialize—even nonmagical Turathi artifacts fetch a handsome profit on the open market.
Either way, House Talekris usually keeps to itself, preferring to use house-loyal servants in their operations. They hire fewer mercenaries than any other merchant house, a deficiency they make up for with a larger-than-normal retainer of dedicated warforged vassals.
