The Latimer family was a house from Lethu. They were a somewhat unusual noble house, being dedicated very directly to the royal family. The entire family lived the capital of Lethu, Edoor, and members of the house were chosen to serve the royal family as castellans, advisers, ministers and bodyguards. Despite this closeness, or perhaps because of it, the Latimer family sided against the royals during the civil war, and were, in fact, the primary instigators of the war.
It is widely believed that all members of the Latimer family died during the civil war, though there are some rumors that one member fled the country before the necromancer’s attack.
