The Kaddren family is one of the founding families of the Varisian city of Magnimar. Many of its members are heavily involved in the city's magical scene. The family is a strong supporter of the Golemworks, but holds itself back from becoming a full sponsor, not wishing to become too closely associated with that establishment's working-class reputation. Kaddren children who show magical promise are sent off to the best magical colleges in the Inner Sea region, with the exception of the Acadamae in Korvosa. The current head of the house is Zimandi Kaddren, a young woman who only recently came to power after her parents' apparent untimely demise.
