An excoriate is a dragonmarked member of a Dragonmarked House who has violated the laws of the house. Originally, the punishment for violating the laws of the house resulted in the lethal flaying of the dragonmark from the culprit. However, in modern times, excoriates are cast out of their house, forced to give up anything they own and are shunned by their house and their family.

Throughout the existence of the The Dragonmarked Houses of Khorvaire, many have been excoriated.

A list of the more notable excoriated members:

  • Mordain d’Phiarlan, known today as Mordain the Fleshweaver
  • All of House Thuranni, making them the smallest House
  • Gaven d’Lyrandar, for aiding House Thuranni in The Shadow Schism. Gaven bore a Siberys Mark of the Storm and was deemed too dangerous and sent to Dreadhold after being excoriated. He went mad and is the only person EVER to escape the Dreadhold. He hasn’t been seen since.
  • Lei d’Cannith. One of the few survivors of the Day of Mourning, Lei was excoriated by Baron Merrix d’Cannith to solidify his power. She has no been seen since, and it rumored to be working for the Lord of Blades.
