Amalas Do’Urden, yes i know them, is your uncle here as well he asks, looking about, nervously? is uncle in on the death of parents? what is hidden must be revealed, possibly scry/look into the past to find out, must consult with uncle.
I have no idea what happened to them or who they were, do you truly trust these people you are with?
