On the morning of the sixteenth of Rain's Hand, a prominent Hlaalu kinsman by the name of Ralen Dorvayn was found dead at the base of the Seyda Neen lighthouse. A blade wound was found in his abdomen, but it seems he ultimately died from a fall from the top of the lighthouse. Citizens of the port settlement mentioned a scuffle in front of the guard house between a local woman and a sentry and later they heard shouting in the night. No other casualties were reported. Some say that the Morag Tong was responsible for Ralen's demise.
Ralen Dorvayn worked in trade deals between House Hlaalu and foreign entities, particularly the Gold Coast Trading Company. His peers described him as a shrewd and ambitious kinsman, though it seems his rise among House Hlaalu has now been cut short. It is also rumored that he was the secret employer of the Red Talon Company, a group of outlander mercenaries responsible for an attack on a tribe of ashlanders.
House Hlaalu has declined to comment on such rumors and speculation.
