Mbelo Iblan

From Spiders

Journeys. From Gem, child of a secondary branch of the noble house Iblan. They're in charge of gold and silver in the city, and run a lot of caravans in the region. Before the great Contagion, the family was merely a group of wealthy traders, but the mineral-rich territory they had access to was much greater than it is today. The population losses gave them the opportunity they needed to ascend into the local nobility, but there are still legends passed down in the city about the wondrous gems and rich mother lodes found beyond the pole.
