Clan an Craite is the second most powerful clan in Skellige[1] and the most important ally of Clan Tuirseach, the longtime holders of the throne. Its jarls reign over the northern half of Ard Skellig from Kaer Trolde citadel.[2] Legend has it that the keep was single-handedly carved out of a large boulder by Grymmdjarr, son of Hemdall and Heulyn famed for his strength, who then started the clan.[3]

Their colors are red and black, which they carry on their shields, tartans, and sails along with three black longships symbolizing either their marine prowess or mighty fleet.[4]
