This high noble family has kept a low profile in the capital Suzail for many years, slowly growing a network of trade in magical supplies and the odd artifact.

In recent years, Hiren Kropus moved to Malorens Rest with his branch of the family to search for and develop a supply of swamp based reagents.

Securing a writ of trade under the current military motivations of Cormyr, Hiren was able to not only secure his trade, but permit a small army of protection in his families efforts.

The Kropus family is not well known around Malorens Rest by many of its citizens, but everyone knows of them, and their doings to a limited degree.

They regularly contract out of town talent to help with affairs and never use the same people twice.
