House Tsalaxa is a cruel and ambitious merchant house based out of Draj. They are known for underhanded tactics and assassination. They are nearly perpetually at war with House Wavir, and usually on good relations with House Stel. They have prospered from the increased paranoia of the sorcerer kings, and recently it was discovered that they managed to infiltrate and absorb a third of House Shom. This makes many of the regions powers nervous. Also, it is rumoured that The Shadows are at war wit them.
