Shadows of Eberron
House Cannith is a human dragonmarked house whose members are well known for their innovation and advancements in technology. They are responsible for technological wonders such as the Warforged and the Lightning rail. House Cannith provide repair services and the house’s gorgon mark is a known and trusted symbol that appears on magical and mundane items. Through past wars, Cannith has become the most politically powerful Dragonmarked House.
The ruling leader of House Cannith is called a Patriarch or Matriarch for female leaders. The last Patriarch was Starrin d’Cannith. After the Day of Mourning, a new patriarch was to be assigned, however, with Starrin’s only heir dead the decision became incredibly complicated. Three heirs stepped up to claim the title and now each of them has divided House Cannith into Cannith West, East, and South. The three heirs are Merrix (south), Zorlan (east) and Jorlana (west).
