House Arkona is one of the most powerful noble families in the former Chelish colony of Korvosa. Unlike most other families of that town, members of the Arkona family live only in Varisia.[1]

HistoryEdit

Although an old family that predates even the founding of the Cheliax, by 4458 AR House Arkona had sunk into poverty. Lord Garath Arkona of Korvosa and his sociable brother and adviser Jenkson Arkona, in the caravel "Reprieve", set sail for distant and exotic Vudra. The shipment they brought back returned House Arkona to a place of prominence in the nobility. Overnight, the much-derided house went from among the poorest noble families to second only to House Jeggare in wealth. In the next few years Lord Garath and Jenkson indulged in nearly every vice available, from drugs to cruelty to pleasures of the flesh.

Current prospectsEdit

Since their initial voyage to Vudra, House Arkona has only increased its wealth and influence in the city. Nothing occurs in the back alleys or stinking vaults of Old Korvosa without House Arkona knowing about it. It is a poorly kept secret that the family controls or has influence over every major (and most minor) criminal enterprise in the city.[2]
