Tanair was an estate located on the island of Lombyn in the Copper Isles. The estates were the dowry of Sarugani Temaida and they became part of the extensive lands of House Balitang upon her marriage to Mequen Balitang.

Description

Tanair used to belong to the Temaida family. It has only a small castle and a not much bigger village. It is close to Pohon and Inti, two raka villages.

After Dove's ascension to the throne of the Copper Isles, it is unknown if she owned the lands, or if Winnamine Balitang did. Of course, according to the conspiracy's talk of returning luarin lands to their previous raka owners, they might have been returned to the Temaida family—although the family did not part with them unwillingly.

Events

Exile of the Balitangs

After King Oron heavily taxed the Balitangs into near poverty, Tanair became their only option for a home and they were forced to uproot in 462 HE. They had to get rid of many servants and slaves in order to live on tiny Tanair.

Battle at Tanair

In 462 HE, Bronau Jimajen staged an attack on Tanair and killed Mequen Balitang. He wanted Mequen to stage a revolt against the current rulers of the Isles and abdicate in favor of his eldest daughter Saraiyu Balitang, whom he wanted to marry in order to complete this plan.

Aftermath

Rubinyan Jimajen came to visit with the Balitangs after Mequen's death, and the prince even mourned the loss of Mequen. He and his wife had pardoned the Balitangs, but Winnamine refused to return to Rajmuat, as she needed some time to mourn. Rubinyan said they would expect her in the spring.[1]

Over the winter, Alianne Crow amassed a pack of spies and trained them at Tanair.[2]
