The Paelion family plotted against its own house, House Phiarlan, in 972 YK seeking to take control of the house and wrest power from the rulers of the Five Nations. The plot failed however when agents of the Emerald Claw informed the Thuranni family, resulting in a bloody slaughter of the entire Paelion family line. Seeing the act of attacking ones own house as betrayal Baron Elvinor Elorrenthi d'Phiarlan denounced the Thuranni family. Afterwards the Thuranni line broke off from House Phiarlan to form its own house rather than suffer disgrace, in what would come to be known as the Shadow Schism. Today House Thuranni competes directly with its former house and its leader baron Elar d'Thuranni still believes his actions were just.
