The Ranthen, also known as the scarred ones, are an alliance of Rephaim who oppose the rule of the Sargas family and believe in the eventual restoration of the Netherworld. The name 'Ranthen' is derived from 'amaranth' as it is the only flower that grows in the Netherworld. According to Warden in The Mime Order, their call to arms was the blooming of the amaranth in Sheol I.
