The Calanthis family is a line of Vintish nobility that has ruled Vint since its founding.

Feyda Calanthis was posthumously declared the first king of Tarvintas, suceeded by his brother, Jarvis.[1] After the Aturan Empire came into Vint, 'converting everyone to the Iron Law and the Book of the Path', the Calanthis family took the throne of Vint from the Alveron family, to which it is related.[2] In the Calanthis court, gentlemen carry swords.[3] Calanthis is the Eld Vintic name for Sipquicks,[4] which are yellow and red,[5] and thus likely the same as the house colors.
