Frankell is a name associated with craftsmanship and ancient martial techniques. Their family crest is an axe and a blacksmith’s hammer laid over a skull. This symbol perfectly encompasses the Frankell’s claim to fame. It is said their line dates back to the humans of Goaranor, and are among the original settlers of Nylevran.
The family has spread greatly since then. When the merchant lords travelled northwest, an auspicious Frankell arms maker went with them. When Sorianeth took Delrin by storm, he brought a young Frankell as his personal armorer. The rest, however, stayed to see to their homeland of Nylevran. Today, things are good for the Frankell family.
Eric Frankell is the patriarch of the family's Delrish branch. They say the man is impossibly tall and wields many weapons into battle. He is the leader of King Jargos Vulkan’s Crown Vigil, as well as an accomplished craftsman. Despite following the monarch around, he owns a small and prestigious forge.
Cecilia Frankell is the matriarch of the Nylevranian branch. Like her cousin in the north, she too runs a blacksmith in the city of Valencia. Her massive foundry is famous for how quickly it can put out quality steel. Despite her relatively small stature, her ability to hammer metal is unrivaled. She has earned quite the reputation for herself by innovating weapon production.
Pierre Frankell is the patriarch of the Yvorian branch. He is a relatively wealthy merchant, dealing in the weapons trade. His company, Hammermark Arms, has business across all of Cyrdoma. Many have criticised him for selling to the Ogaitnans throughout the years, though he defends himself by claiming lack of ignorance.
Even in The War of Black Dawn, the hero Lukien Frankell was instrumental in taking down the death God. Honorable and proud, the Frankell family is one of rich history. With a well practiced trade, they have ensured success for many generations to come.
