The Lost Seas
The Turax family have long been one of Tyr’s most powerful and traditional noble families. Under Kalak, Senator Embl Turax (the elderly head of the family) was a constant opponent of would-be reformers such as Agis of Asticles. Upon Kalak’s fall, Turax opposed the accession of Tithian to the crown, arguing against a monarchy for Tyr and in favor of an oligarchy—a Senate composed of educated nobles. Often siding with the Dyan family, the Turaxes lost one of their most powerful allies recently when Murter Dyan was executed and the Dyan name attainted.
