The Kadanh Cycle
House Chaigar is one of the wealthiest in Nechara. Long ago, they mingled their blood with that of a fearsome demon, and have the appearance of fairness and young age, but the strength of tigers. They often wear masks to conceal their great beauty, and their weapons are forged on anvils of devil-steel, heated with their own burning breath. Greatest of them all is the Kadanh of Chaigar, the unquestioned ruler of the House, whose skill at the blade is unsurpassed. The Kadanh runs his family with an iron fist, commanding beasts and taking devils as his lovers, practicing strange sorceries and sending his three daughters into battle with weapons of devil-brass.
The Kadanh himself is named Cabracan, though this name is seldom used. His magics are such that he appears a young and handsome man, despite being well over sixty. He wears a mask of brass and obsidian, he possesses a magical mirror of black stone, and his sword is jade and thunder. He commands one thousand soldiers.
The first of his daughters is Akhushtal, who commands five hundred, whose wrath is terrifying. Akhushtal possesses a demon’s temper, and fights in a bloodied battle-rage. It is said her skin is like bronze, and that she takes joy in slaying enemies personally, wading into battle with her devil-brass axe and her cast-iron shield, that only she is strong enough to lift.
The second of his daughters is Kuthulak, the cripple, whose demonic lineage gave her stunted growth and an evil visage. She was born with just one arm; her father grafted a demon onto her shoulder, taking the shape of a great metal limb with the strength of five men. She wears black armor and rides a great black horse, and punishes crime but occasionally shows mercy.
The third of his daughters is Vuracul, the fiend, whose flesh is marked with strange tattoos and who practices forbidden martial arts, taught by demonic sifus. She keeps a beast from the Wyld as her pet, and shuns combat but obeys her father when he commands her to kill, for she’s the single greatest duelist of all her sisters, capable of slaying an armored man with a single blow from her open palm.
