The Finnest house was a young Azath house that grew from the Jaghut Tyrant Raest's Finnest on Lady Simtal's estate in Darujhistan.

The Finnest House was described as bearing no architectural similarity to any other edifice in all of Darujhistan. A snaking path of tilted pavestones led to a massive door half buried in shadows beneath an arching branch.[1] The walls were half-stone, half-wood, with vines snaking up the sides and sprawling over the humped ground in the low-walled yard. The few trees in the yard were twisted and leafless, roots bared like bones.[2]

In Gardens of the MoonEdit

Adjunct Lorn planted the acorn containing Raest's finnest on Simtal's estate hoping to lure the Tyrant to wreak havoc in Darujhistan. The House began to grow from the spot, but was for a short time impeded by the presence of Rallick Nom, whose skin was infused with otataral powder. Despite this difficulty, the House managed to capture and imprison both Raest and his finnest.[3]

After it had grown into a full fledged house, Rallick Nom brought an injured Vorcan Radok to the Finnest House to try and escape the Tiste Andii pursuing them. The door of the house opened for Rallick, but did not for the Andii. Korlat, the leader of the pursuers, considered calling her Lord Anomander Rake to destroy the house, but knowing he was weakened, she and her Andii brethren withdrew.[4]

In Toll the Hounds Edit

Its guardian turned out to be Raest himself, who had become a servant of the Azath. Ganoes Paran occasionally visited the house. Barathol and Antsy brought Chaur to the Finnest house as a desperate measure to save him.

In Orb Sceptre Throne Edit

Rallick Nom visited the Finnest house, trying to find out more about what was going on. Raest told him that the game was all about bluffs. A T'lan Imass was playing cards with Raest, while Chaur recovered, sleeping on the floor.[5]
