The House of Sussex
The House of Sussex is a cadet offshoot of the House of Octavius. There are three active members of the Sussex family in the realms of men. Each one is very different in their personalities and ambitions.
Alfhelm is a passionate believer in democracy and maintains an interest in the mysterious arts of magic.
Grimwald the Black is a distant and malevolent relative of Alfhelm. He has made his home in Outer Tilog in the Colonies where he indulge his murderous desires and advance his evil ambitions in the company of like-minded nobles.
Ashwoda and Alfhelm are cousins. She began life as a traveller and sailed across the world. But while sailing across the sunken lands of Atamara she came across an ancient Ashlantean artefact floating on the waves.
