Exalted: Tales of the Dreaming Sea
The Nirodha Family
One of the oldest aristocratic families of Champoor. The Nirodha use to control the flow of bureaucracy throughout the city and their coffers ran deep as they were regularly bribed by wealthy merchants to ensure they could do business without interruption.
The Nirodha used to have deep ties to the Court of Secrets which is how they got to where they were. When the Prasadi took over the Court turned its back on them and they family turned on itself.
The vestiges of the family that remain have fallen far from grace. They’ve turned to necromancy and other means to wrest some small measure of power for themselves.
