Mard Heavy Dancer was a fearless man, renowned for his luck. He had the ability to laugh at any situation. He quested to the Other Side, and gained the ability to make great leaps. During an assault on Alkoth, he sprang to the top of the 100 metre high wall to cast javelins at the Shadzorings.

Vornathendra was the daughter of Vorkara the Awakener and Skild Harefoot. She was both conceived and born at Varknathendar during Sacred Time. While visiting there as a girl, she heard the spirits talking. That day, she had her first woman-blood.

Before long, Vornathendra became the Priestess of Varknathendar, sealing the ritual with Angmord the Bold, son of Linder Brightspear, son of Frusang Loudmouth, son of Odrang River-Conqueror. She was soon the most powerful woman in Voranel.

Vornathendra had many fine children, with different fathers. With Alteng, son of Mard Heavy Dancer, she had a son, Jangi Two-Step. Jangi took after his grandfather, though he walked in Yinkin's path. Few could meet his stare in battle.

Vornathendra's daughter Nallindia was known for her nimbleness. She made a good marriage to Money-Holldor, and gave birth to a daughter, Esgillia. But when the girl was about two years old, she fell into the Erinflarth river and was carried away. Money-Holldor blamed Nallindia for Esgillia's death, and divorced her. Nallindia travelled, first to Rist, then to Heortling lands, where she realized she was called by Dronyesta Foxhair, a pre-Dawn Vingan hero.

Vornathendra was known as an Awakener, and frequently hosted members of the Elder Races. One time when a sickness hit Voranel, she asked the help of Martog Darkwhisper, a Xiola Umbar priestess. Martog broke the plague, and was welcomed among the Odrangings afterwards.

Kuleneth, a renowned war leader of the Lanisti, married Vornathendra. Although some said their marriage was not very passionate, both seemed very pleased by it.

Kuleneth's younger brother was Hrothgar the Mighty. He was a tall man, popular and fearless, but slow of speech. He married Elerandra, an ambitious woman who was a shrewd trader. Hrothgar bore the sword Demon-Biter on several raids against Alkoth.

Kuleneth fostered Janalath Cloud-Waker, who became good friends with Hrothgar.

Faltham was an important member of the Odranging clan, known for his generosity and the splendid appointments of his hall. He opposed Kuleneth in his election as warlord, but they remained friends, and Kuleneth appointed him to the clan ring.

Faltham had two sons. Feolam was known for his strength, and became a clan weaponthane. Furlam became a god-talker at an early age, and spread the news of the Lightbringers, walking the path of Hedbeday. It was widely known that he read many books, and he was sought after in neighboring communities as a mediator. He was appointed as the clan's ambassador to the Council in Dorastor.

Gwithfyra Earthwitch was one of the god-talkers at Varknathendar. Her son Kothar had a knack for fire magic, and became a redsmith. Seeking to learn more about his craft, he rescued a mostali smith from the aldryami.

Verdun Owl Eye ... He built a strong stead at Weeping Rocks.

Sekinmor was touched by Mastakos, and frequently travelled far from Voranel. He returned often, but was content nowhere.
