The Ikhtealyo clan and its two associates seek peace with other major interstellar govemments.  Heavily involved in interface trading, the bloc would suffer greatly from the loss of extra-Hierate trade during a war with the Imperials or Solomani.

Soon after the Peace of Ftahalr in 2810 Aslan (380 Imperial), the appeal of dust spice from Romar (2140 Spinward Marches) triggered a surge of colonization across the Rift.  This brought Ikhtealyo clan into the Tlaukhu, allowing its companies to trade with the maturing Domain of Deneb, and to a lesser degree the Zhodani Consulate and other neighboring human states.
