The Rise of Apparition
- Triac Karnstein – Commander of the Kail (a giant Fortress-Ship), has led the martial forces of his House since the 5th Age. A name synonymous with brutality and slaughter.
- Crimson Steeds: An elite order of knights who act as bodyguards of the Karnsteins. These knights wear unique armour, forged onto their bodies by mystic smiths. This armour reflects the wearers emotions, changing colours from crimson to black when angry.
Karnstein have been the leading House in the Nine Planes since the ?5th? Age. By the 11th Age, they are growing weak, and fear rebellion from lower Houses.
