The Rookheim La Khalai family is one of the ruling merchant bloodlines of Laddenstradda. Their fame came from exploitation of refugees from the south east region. Large quantities of humans, gnomes, and halflings, left their homeland in droves, to escape the raging Wizard Wars, and Rookheim La Khalai family already established infrastructure in the ruins of old Shalo-Saana.
The Rookheim La Khalai family grew in power and influence, becoming not only a powerful player in the Shalo-Saana ruins, but also an unrelenting force of greed and resources in the north east region.
Ali Rookheim is a descendant of the Rookheim La Khalai family, a fifth son of Aliyah Rookheim. He grew up in a traditional Rookheim La Khalai family, Aliyah was the mother with several obedient husbands. Aliyah was the head of the house hold, commanding business affairs and spending time fighting with her extended family for Rookheim La Khalai inheritance.
