The House of El has made its tradition to be great crafters and artisans of magic. There was a time when they raised [Magelords] and [Spellweavers] who created the artifacts adventurers fought for, armed their armies with magic and sorcery as well as steel.
The Mirror of Eternal Youth was an artifact long in the possession of the El family.
Over time, the El family lost most of their great artifacts however, failed in their investments and became poor. They grew poorer over the last thousand years. They are still not destitute, having retained their Estates, but their need for money has become most pressing.
Policy of House El is to have a patriarch or matriarch controlling the gold of the family, and give stipends to family members who are also expected to contribute to the ongoing prosperity of the house.
About 200 years ago, the Reinhart and the El family feuded against Oteslia over a dispute regarding trade from Chandrar. In the battle that happened in the Human lands, General Ironscales lost her life.
[Lady] Maviola El and reigning matriarch of the family recently decided to abdicate, and designated [Lord]/[Artificer] Deilan El as her successor. Maviola El also assisted in the banishment of Belavierr from Izril's north. She then took her collection of potions of temporary youth and went on to her last adventure, which would only last a few weeks before the potions would run out and Maviola would likely die, being old, fragile and disabled as she was.
