Corruption in the City of Brass
House Umn is an old house. They can trace their human lineage back past the human rebellion that freed the City of Brass from the tyrannical rule of the efreet Ziyad. Their records show that this is around the time that most of the noble houses of the region were formed. It is rumored that they can trace their lineage back to near the time of the event that caused the planar rifts that plague the region. The family is few and far between compared to the other noble houses. They do not recruit new adopted members like the other houses. Members are married into the family. Because of their long history and their closed door practices, very little is publicly known about the family. Many wild rumors speculate about the Lord Umn being a vampire of great lich; none of these have been confirmed.
