House of Pentheru
The Sand Snakes’ second assigned site is an estate that belonged to the family of a man named Pentheru. Like many minor Osirian nobles, Pentheru owned a section of farmland and was responsible for its administration, overseeing the farmers who worked the land and the distribution of grain, and ensuring the proper taxes were paid to the local authorities and the Keleshite sultan in Sothis who ruled Osirion at the time. Pentheru the Elder started construction of the estate but passed away during its construction. His son, Pentheru the Younger, inherited his lands and title and finished the house. When the Plague of Madness struck Wati, Pentheru the Younger fell victim to it and quickly died. Had he survived longer, he might have evacuated his family and household staff from the city, but without his leadership, his family interred him in a crypt on the property and tried to weather the plague. Pentheru’s servants and guards did their best to defend the estate and the family, but amid the chaos and the plague’s virulence, the entire household perished.
