Peleahn are shek p'var who specialize in protection (abjuration) spells and as a result tend to think defensively. The teachings in abjuration magic set forth the idea that the world is a dangerous place and a wizard needs all the help he can get just to stay alive. Peleahns tend toward devices that provide protection while still allowing spellcasting (such as broach of shielding and bracers of defense).
Peleahns are also easily recognizable by the large groups of well armed servitors, guards, the number of mechanical and magical traps, and the warning devices in their quarters. Peleahns are viewed as cowardly by other groups, but consider themselves sensible, solid, and cautious.
Peleahns are subsidized by the New Melderyni royalty. The crown has decided to re-invest it's expendetures in defenses. The New Melderyn Defense Forces already puts a great deal of its money into magical attacks in case of attack, but they hold a greater rein on the Peleahns inner workings. The Tazmut still hold a grudge with them for taking their place as the favored shek p'var.
They prefer robes of white which identifies them as "royal protectors" of which the "Gentle Order of the White Hand" is the most prominent. They follow local styles, so they will look like common people.
Peleahns have good relations with most other shek p'var, save for Tazmut, who view abjuration as a cowardly art of a backstabbing shek p'var. Though Peleahns and Lyahvi are of opposing shek p'var, the two groups get along surprisingly well.
A visible article of white clothing must be worn by all Peleahns for their spells to be fully effective. If no white is worn, the level of effect for their spells is two levels lower (to a minimum of second level effect, thus only fourth level Peleahns and above are affected).
Note: Not all Peleahns are spellcasters. Sages, librarians, contributors, honorary members, scribes, as well as others may hold titles. There is no Virana of this shek p'var and several Shenava. Only spellcasters suffer the side effects.
Note spells listed in BOLD type are closed spells, which only Peleahn may legally know and cast. New spells created in the abjuration school become providence of the Peleahn and consequently the crown by Petition 179. Also, spells that also belong to other shek p'vars cannot be closed, the only exception to this is Odivshe spells (because their chantries are outlawed).
