The Thurnthorn family is a minor noble family hailing from Glinmar in the east of Sirion. Historically they have concerned themselves little with politics and warfare and instead concentrated on building up the familys wealth through trading. From time to time they have maintained trade contacts with most other nations on the East Island. With the last years prolonged warfare disrupting trade there has been a change in family policy where the Thunthorns have taken a more active part in the defense of Sirion. Now the family actively devotes its resources to end the war and open up trade again.
