The Arelius family is shown mainly as servant family in the Blackflame Empire tasked with maintenance of the Empire's infrastructure, including sanitation.
However, there is also an Arelius main branch (House Arelius) on the Rosegold continent which was a Monarch faction prior to the death of their Monarch, Tiberian Arelius. This began with the First Patriarch, who ascended and went on to become Ozriel, the Reaper.
Descendants of the Arelius bloodline inherit the Arelius bloodline senses, which extends physical senses.
Status[edit | edit source]
The Arelius Monarch, Tiberian Arelius, is known as the Fallen Monarch and assumed to be dead or gone. The Arelius main clan is referred to as 'ruined', but they are competing in the Uncrowned King Tournament.
The Sage of a Thousand Eyes and a Sage of Brooms are also mentioned in passing, but it is unknown if these two are the same person or if they are still alive.
Appearance in Uncrowned[edit | edit source]
Massive blocks of pale stone held up by fluted columns made up the next viewing tower. The people inside were draped in white and by and large had bright yellow hair, though Lindon noticed there were fewer people in these stands than in any of the others. Above their tower, a cloud flashed constantly with bright blue lightning. It was an impressive display, but it emitted none of the spiritual pressure that came from the other Monarch platforms. Lindon doubted there was anyone up there. The Arelius Monarch, after all, had been killed.

In the Uncrowned King Tournament, two additional members of the core family were introduced: Veris and Altavian Arelius.
Altavian practices a sword Path, but Veris practices a Path with storm\lightning aspects and uses techniques very similar in description to the Arelius tower cloud, so it is presumed to be the main Path of the core family.
To avoid losing too many resources, while still staying in the limits of the tournament rules, the Arelius faction awarded Lindon and Yerin with prizes after the third round:
- Yerin was awarded the Diamond Veins Elixir, which is said to make Madra channels pure and resilient as diamonds.
- Lindon was awarded the Iron's Heart, a divine treasure which complements his Bloodforged Iron Body, supercharging its healing capabilities.
Before their match, Eithan suggested Veris and Altavian meet him in two years time, when the portal to the Blackflame Empire opens.
