Balantine Hill is the home of the Bhrawn Family, who were once one of the most prominent nobilities in all of Arem. Unfortunately, a mishap many generations ago saw the destruction of this once proud family. A thief stole a precious piece of armor from Beros Bhrawn, who then went insane with revenge. His following actions put the house to shame, reducing their influence, which eventually led the Bhrawn name to have no influence what so ever in the realm.
Today, the Balantine Hill is nearly in ruins. The only thing the Bhrawn Family has to hold on to is their undeniable hatred for thieves, which still runs strong. That, and their jealousy of Palantine Hill and the Thrawn Family, with people believing that the two were once related (distant cousins) many, many generations ago.
