House Aalto is the largest of the 12 families of Tammisaari, with more than 500 elves at arms. It allegiances are divided between the Pellervoinen and Vainola factions, with the latter holding sway with fewer - but more powerful, and older - members. It is most active in trade throughout the lake (the faction leaning away from the king) and in banking (the faction leaning toward the king.) It is headed by Joel Alto, a scholar and magician.
