Long After, Xin-Eurythnia
The Arkonas are easily one of the most powerful families in all Korvosa, but there was a time when they stood on the verge of poverty and extinction. The House was saved from obscurity by the audacity of Lord Garath Arkona and his brother Jenkson, who launched an expedition to Vudra in 4460 AR, spearheading a program of trade with the Impossible Kingdoms that made their fortune anew—a fortune which they proceeded to invest in every form of vice and illicit trade Old Korvosa had to offer. House Arkona weathered the Cousins’ War with aplomb, and now stands as the sole noble house on Endrin Isle, with almost total control of everything that goes on in Old Korvosa, especially if it’s illegal. Currently, House Arkona answers to Lord Glorio Arkona, who has curried a reputation as a philanthropist and champion of the common man, despite the sinister reputation of his house. He is rarely outside the company of his beautiful cousin, Lady Meliya Arkona, and most believe the two to be lovers.
