History

Since the title is tied closely to the Zandari Family the history of the Seer is connected to the family's. The old Silaro Empire once enslaved the Zandari and the family member that is identified as the Seer during that time were often tortured and drugged to induce visions.   It took a lot of work for the Zandari to work their way up out of slavery and it was the Eternal Emperor Ilishen Zandari and is sister Loshina the Seer. They did this by founding their empire which is historically called the Zandari Empire which resulted in one of the longest periods of peace in the Galaxy.   However, that time ended faster than what people were hoping for when Ilishen and Loshina were both assassinated. Ilishin's children were taken by the Guardians of the Peace and the Silaro with his firstborn being taken by the Guardians and the one that was going to be the Seer was taken by the Silaro. After this, it was believed that the lines were lost.
