The Rathberns are seen as aloof and above the fray of the common people and their needs and concerns. The family is one of the smallest of the major families but they are extremely wealthy and are very influential with the royal family and the courts. Their domain is the western coast where most of the fishing in the kingdom is done. The family also has within its domain the only canneries in the kingdom and developed that technology over six decades ago. Historically, members of this family have served as Knights of Allegiance to the near exclusion of every other order and faction. Before the creation of the noble structure most were merchants that walked in the circles of the wealthy, influential gentry. The cities within their domain also have a reputation for being rather rough and tumble.
Green is the house color and an octopus is the house symbol.
