House Illance was a noble house of Cormyr based in Suzail.

Holdings[]

Although the family was based in Suzail it had deep roots in Marsember and owned many properties through a complicated web of small companies bearing the names of others.[2] The family owned a palatial home in Marsember known as "Iyrinthorn",[3] and a summer house at Stag Well.[4]

Reputation[]

The family's menfolk were notorious womanizers and were frequent patrons of Mask Dance clubs.[5] The family was involved in some illicit dealings,[4] and persistent local rumors of ongoing slaving operations using their Marsember-based vessels and warehouses plagued the family.[2]

The House was an enemy of the House Cormaeril.[1]

History[]

Some members of the family plotted with Luthax against King Draxius in 629 DR[6] and several unnamed members fought with King Galaghard III against the Witch-Lords in 900 DR.[7]

House Illance was among those who fought with Arangor and Azoun II against the dragon Thauglor in 1018 DR, where one of their houses in Suzail was destroyed.[8]

House Illance slowly lost influence at the Royal Court over generations, and weak family leaders poorly managed and invested the family fortune, but the family was never in ruin.[9]

By 1479 DR, the family's fortunes had improved through deals with the Seven Suns Trading Company.[5]
