HistoryEdit

Cassalanter

The Cassalanter family crest.

House Cassalanter was ennobled in 1248 DR when the Lords of Waterdeep recognized several merchant houses and granted them noble titles and seals.[15]

In the late 15th century DR, the Cassalanters faced imminent bankruptcy. In order to prevent it, in 1489 DR[note 1] Ammalia and Victoro struck a deal with the archdevil Asmodeus, trading the souls of their children in exchange for instant financial comeback. Their eldest son, Osvaldo, was taken immediately and transformed into a chain devil, while the younger twins Elzerina and Terenzio were scheduled to be taken on the occasion of their 9th birthday, one tenday after Founders' Day of 1492 DR.[16]

NotesEdit

  1. Canon material does not provide a year for the events described in Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, but Christopher Perkins answered a question via Twitter and stated the year was 1492 DR. Unless a canon source contradicts this assertion, this wiki will use 1492 DR for events related to this sourcebook and Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage (which is referenced on pages 5 and 98 of Dragon Heist).
