The Ott Family
The Ott family descends from Mercere the Founder’s bloodline. House Mercere’s traditions surrounding its Gifted members inspired Emil Ott from early in his arcane studies to find the long sought means to breed the Gift true into every offspring.
Despite all his research and the trouble of lining up faerie broodmares, his older children only had minor talents. To his joy, a fling with a grog maid the night before his first longevity ritual gave him a Gifted child that he’s doted upon and favored ever since.
