Rath and Lania Koranth were born and raised in the Highgrove region. As they were both from the prominent families of the same village, they were married and soon took up leadership roles as ambassadors. Growing up during the Dark Wars took a toll on the young couple and it was not long before they named themselves advocates of peace and refused to pick sides.
While not an unpopular opinion, both of the opposing sides grew tired of pandering for their support and turned to less civil ways of persuasion. To this day, it is unknown which side was responsible for the assassination of the Koranths but the region of Highgrove, no longer willing to stay neutral, erupted into civil war as the people could not unite on which side to take.
