House Vanderale is among the oldest of the aristocratic families in the Varisian city of Magnimar. Unlike other families whose fortunes have waned in the last century, the Vanderales maintain all of their clout, and are thought by some to be Magnimar's most powerful noble house. Their fortune derives from their extensive trade networks and their control of the Merchants' Guild. In addition, they own nearly two dozen ships that import and export all manner of goods to and from the City of Monuments. House Vanderale is currently led by the experienced and observant Mivonis Vanderale.
