Telani word:

The Alathan, or house, is a gelvani term used to define both a single family unit and a social group. Gelvani tend to live in a family unit with the eldest mother being the Thena, or Matriarch, of the house. The families may either live in one large home or several smaller homes, usually within a days walk of each other. The more powerful houses hold political and social influence over thei community and, in some cases, the entire realm. The Quel-Thena is always the Matriarch of her own Alathan.

Plural: Alathani
