The Eiflanders are a noble house of the Northern Kingdom. For generations they have deemed themselves the custodians of Khameril, and the have often attempted to impose cultural sanctions on the people of the realm.
At the end of The Last War, the Eiflanders accused the community of magic users as being the cause of the turmoil. The Eiflanders then struck a shadowy deal with Chanter Oomar, a respected teacher of magical arts. According to official sources, Chanter Oomar agreed that magic was too powerful to be in the hands of freethinking, radical people. Therefore, Chanter Oomar and the House Eiflander founded the Covenant of Mages, banishing the teaching of magic to anyone outside the Covenant. Furthermore, they set up an isolated tower on in the mountains of the Northern Kingdom, for the purpose of training new mages in a controlled setting, and also so that they can be protected by House Eiflander.
