Symbol: Derba (horse-like creature)
Tanni: Atalar Daruba
Traditional Allies: House Jerovel, House Hesh
Tanni Profile: Atalar Daruba descends from the first Kithana of the realms, who took the derba riding skills of the Ursus and combined them with the heavy armor of the Yadarans. Along with House Jerovel and House Hesh, these three families are collectively known as the Lords of the North. In many ways, the cross-cultural influence of the Arai has made Atalar have a love of life and battle. He is known to drink and whore to excess, then easily shake-off the effects the next morning to lead a heavy cavalry charge against his enemies. He is known to be impulsive and quick to both temper and laughter, but he does not hold a grudge once matters have been settled. His House has a long standing feud with House Garimsta over territorial claims and actions both sides have taken during the Foundation Wars.
