The Galgari clan occupy the lands to the far west of Northern Tarania. Carran, the capital, is a coastal settlement where whaling, fishing and shipbuilding have been the traditional industries for hundreds of years. Recently, Carran has also developed into a busy port servicing the mining industry. In 1174, tragedy befell the clan when its chieftain, Orla Galgari, and all but one of her family were assassinated on the Carran Pass. Although Orla’s surviving daughter, Sorcha, is a popular successor, financial calamity has forced her to sell a share of the clan’s mining industry to outside interests.
