House Gilran does have a dark past involving demons, and Elinas discovered this terrible secret one day while exploring a disused cellar in the family’s dwelling in Chelos. According to the records he found, generations past, a small number of Elinas’s ancestors did worship Orcus. While this was clearly illegal and involved doing evil things, these people were also responsible for creating much of the house’s wealth and power that still exists today. The rest of the family eventually discovered what has happening and quietly “dealt with them.” They also did their best to keep the whole affair under wraps, but the stories have persisted, nonetheless. Elinas destroyed these records and kept his discovery from the rest of his family. For if this truth is proven, the authorities could confiscate all the family’s holdings. While House Gilran would still retain its title, it would be a shell of its former self.
