House Listings

"Fate fools the bold."
-Faerin Parable

The Noble Houses of the Triad and beyond are the ruling factions made up powerful clans that descend from mega-corporations that struck a deal of dictatorship with ancient general, Baal Aken. Since that day they have considered themselves above the rest and it is their agendas that rule the Land in the Stars.

Each House within the Land in the Stars comes from a unique nation, ethnic group, religion, and distinctive cultural tone. Some Houses recognize male inheritance, some female, while others favor non-binary genders. One may face internal feud while others must face raids from vampiric aliens.

A Quick Overview
Every House within the House Listings will include a brief history and including its current issues. It will also include quick notes about its holdings, and the ethnic / subracial background. A link to the greater "House Profile" to the wiki will be included to help those who wish to know more! For those seeking to simply find characters you can find those in the House Bloodliens and Retainership. Bloodlines will note the living members of the House some will be named in full (usually these are taken) others will be not. Any notes for the character including racial background and status will be included in lineage. Retainers will include the same.

Example:
Key
___ - Denotes Blank Name (use racial and ethnic naming convention
Orange Font - House Lord / Lady - Hard Difficulty
Yellow Font - Imperial Bureaucrat - Medium Difficulty
Normal Font - House Member / Retainer - Easy Difficulty
() - Used to denote racial, gender notes.
+ - Used to denote that the individual married into the family.
deceased - Denotes a dead member of the family.

Houses of Throne

"It matters not that you love or hate in war or politics, only seek advantage."
-The Teachings of the Inner Mind, Louis the SunLord

House Durant (Sovereign)
Sovereign Princes of Throne, Markis de Secteur Trois et Quarte, Viscomtes de Veilais
"Hold the Line!"
Starborn / Veilrien House 

House Durant claims descent from the noble warrior, Durant the Brave, who fought for the Immortal Dynasties well over four thousand years ago. Their long lineage is so prestigious in fact it has outlived the general dislike their Worldborn neighbors holds for the Durant's Starborn blood. The rise of power of the clan resulted from careful planning, overwhelming military force, and a stark honor that few can muster in times of need. When the Void War and later the Dark Years descended upon the Triad it was the blood of Durant that held the Marcher Line. Oldest of the Marcher Houses, the Mark de Haucrauis et Masardy exists as a bastion in a world of chaos.

While the Durants have a strong claim upon their home system, their enemies the Athenes and Orisai plot their end. Few wish to see the death of such a powerful House, but Wolrdborn never liked bending the knee to "colonists". Now with knifes hunting them in the stillness of the dark, even the long imposed Honor of their blood may not be able to save them.

Houses of Rook

"Harald Blackwolf fought the Red Scorpion in open space above Rook Star itself, a grand duel to decide the very fate of the system itself."
-Imperial Archives, the Wolf-Scorpion War

House Hormuz (Sovereign)
Sovereign Princes of Rook, Earls de Duzahk, Barons de Ormazdshahr
"Wait and strike."

A Worldborn / Duzakat House

House Hormuz was once a backwater family that ruled over a small city state upon the burning sands north of the Sand Emirates of Duzahk. However, a series of wily rulers made of Kings and Queens eventually united the wayward nomadic northern peoples into a grand desert Kingdom that sits near the sun-scarred mountains called the Scorpion Tail. From there they would launch a war of ambition against the ruling House of Tyr and under the former Padimira, Sadira the Red Scorpion, attain rule over the entire Rook System. As a House Ascendant, they are seen as usurpers and up-jumped warlords by most. Their uncouth and often brutal means of politics has upset the general status quo of the Imperial Court and many say that the ambition of the Scorpion is more than that of Prince.

Because of their recent status, a succession crisis and status of rule looms over the Hormuz. Their allies on Duzahk themselves question the right to declare themselves Earl, and only a few dare come to their side without upsetting the still powerful House Tyr.

Houses of Sentinel

"Attain balance in all things to become ascendant."
-The Many-Given Thought, Jade Path philosophy

House Amaterasu (Sovereign)
Sovereign Princesses of Sentinel, Earlessas de Yomi, Empresses of Sutārei
"We will remain."

A Worldborn/ Rejin House

The most serene august House of Amaterasu Sun-Chosen was founded in the earliest eras of known history. Some say that the Amaterasu date back well into the ancient past beyond the World's gate and that their rule of Sutārei and later Yomi only signals their devotion to an ancient figure they call the Jade King. As ruling Earlessas de Yomi and later Princesses, the House of Amaterasu has been a female dominated family for well over seven generations. Known for its poise and sense of calm the Amaterasu favor pragmatism in politics, and they have formed a conservative bulwark in the House Senate ever since their ascenion over House Artur centuries ago.

Yet the House is not without its problems. They were forced to exile one of their former allies, House Datuk, for acts of treason; and face a growing religious insurrection from the south brought on the insurgent believers of the Itzkachana religion.
