25 years ago, Whispering Hills was the homeland of the La'tham family, a
family whose symbol was the tower and whose line had produced many
worthy warriors for the land.
The head of the family at the time was a worried, moody man. For though he descended from a line of strong and broad-shouldered warriors, he did not follow their example; he was frail, so he immersed himself in the art of spellcraft.
Ashamed that he lacked the power of his forebears, he feared his family line would continue to dandle over time and eventually die out; the La'tham and their land would be forgotten. The man planned and plotted and read and researched and delved, and at length summoned up a dark and fell power.

Of the La'tham family, its patriarch, its guests, and its servants, no physical trace remained, save for the blood that washed every surface, as if a great and powerful beast had been loosed in the halls.
A woman's loud cry interrupted the frightened seek for life, and everyone saw as she raised a child from a small pool of blood. There was no explanation for such event nor they ever searched for one.

the family, nor their guests. The child became part of the Wraith
