    “righteous in wrath”
    Despite Zhaoshang’s reputation for being hard and cold, the Huyans are famed for being hot-blooded. Many of its members are possessed with ill temper or lack of cunning. Although they are not politically gifted by tradition (and the royal house with the fewest historical claims to imperial seats), they are known for turning out great warriors, and are fiercely loyal when need arises. The Huyans have been angry and bitter ever since the death of Ming Xia Huyan and the questions surrounding her death.

    “Above the Rest”
    House Rana is typically considered cold and distant; their diplomatic relations are often stiff and formal rather than fluid and friendly. This has helped to keep them out of disputes and minimize enemies. Their rulership is just and effective, but at times uncompromising. Most would say that Ranas rarely seek personal glory, preferring to stay in the shadows and attract little personal risk.

    “Ours is the Glory”
    Coronas are known to be extremely close and loyal to their family members. Most are known for being charming and having the ability to inspire great loyalty, regardless of sometimes dark rumors. Prideful yet generous, diplomatic yet dangerous, the Coronas are known for their fast-paced, glamorous lifestyle and ability to make even enemies into friends. One notable tradition of this house is said to be inspired by unicorn horns — each Corona is given a personalized dagger, usually hidden beneath clothing, and trained in self-defense.

    “Victory through Unity”
    The Harouns often possess fierce determination and perseverance even in the face of failure, and recent events have been the ultimate test. In the wake of the civil war and the loss of their claim to an imperial seat, they turned inwards to grapple for power, and were also faced with a rebellion led by House Naguib. The once-lauded Amal Haroun fell from grace, and then he was murdered, allowing Musad to take the throne...Only for his sister Rajya to try and claim it instead, resulting in her disownment. Despite these incredible difficulties, Musad defeated the rebellion, is hailed as a war hero, and has improved Nejem's economy, leading to a resurgence in Haroun reputation.

    “ever vigilant”
    For as long as anyone can remember, House Wen has guarded the farthest northern border of Zhaoshang from invasion from Norvik. This has led to jokes that “nothing can get past a Wen,” and that “Wens have a thousand eyes.” They are a rather serious group, and are not known for acting recklessly, unlike other houses, preferring to weigh up situations before making a decision. This has earned them a degree of ridicule in the past; some call them “slow thinkers” and “too slow to act,” while others argue the importance of House Wen’s role as the northernmost guardians of Zhaoshang.

    “right conquers might”
    House Song is obsessed with strength and a person’s worth, and has often found ways to do away with family members perceived as “weak.” They send numerous family members to the far north to fight against the barbarians, and claim that the “will of the Gods” is what led these family members to make that choice. In reality, anyone sent to fight the barbarians is dead, leaving House Song with depleted numbers and a dark secret in the name of personal worthiness. In recent times, they have also become known for poor decision making.

    “burning bright”
    House Xun fell on hard times due to their dedication towards philanthropy. After borrowing more and more money from House Misra, they were greatly in debt. Now, the debt has been settled due to a marriage between the two houses. With such worries now lessened, they have turned their eye to Dvorjard, often clashing with House Wen over the potential acquisition of new lands and a desire for diplomacy rather than war.

    “take the storm”
    There is a saying among the Houses of Zhaoshang: Liangs may have a temper, but nothing raises a Liang’s temper like House Morandi. Their border feud has lasted for centuries, with both houses citing various laws and clauses over their respective borders. Though the feud died down momentarily due to one of their own marrying into the Morandis, the Liangs have now been blamed for the assassination of Carlotta Morandi. Extremely angered, the Liangs actually have nothing to do with Carlotta's death, but due to their ancient grudge and slyness, most believe they are lying.

    “all we need”
    Elevated to from barony house to ducal House status during the civil war, House Amir’s ascension has been met with scrutiny. Shortly after their elevation, Amir lost the majority of their family in one of the naval battles between Persad and Lucenna; as a result, their remaining family is young, inexperienced, and completely unready for life as a ducal house. In the aftermath of the civil war, machinations are already at work to send House Amir back to their status as a minor house, and several houses are circling like sharks, ready to attack at the slightest sign of weakness.

    “ever forward”
    House Johar has a reputation that leaves much to be desired. They have no great claim to fame in any important battles fought in the last civil war; instead they preferred to fight on the fringes rather than attract great loss in battle. The latest generation of House Johar is unhappy with their House’s reputation, and are looking for ways to improve their House’s standing in everyone else’s eyes by whatever means necessary. This led to Ramesh Johar becoming Master of Whispers and participating in illicit schemes, but after being exposed by the Constantinous, he was forced to resign and stepped down to be replaced by Leda Constantinou.

    “vengeance and valour”
    Patient, unforgiving, and stubborn, Sadiks are accustomed to playing the long game to reap both rewards and revenge. Though they are not known as particularly criminal in that they always seem to work within the law, most know that they are not to be trifled with. They are viewed as traitors by a majority of the Nejemese Houses, and played a huge role in abandoning Nejem to its fate during the civil war. They were the first to declare themselves allies to House Haroun in the early days of the civil war, and the first to abandon them once they learnt the truth of their oldest friend’s betrayal.

    “wealth from the sea”
    Most frequently referred to as “House of Misers,” House Misra is famous for its wealth – and how rarely it shares that wealth unless it’s in the form of a loan, with high interest and high costs attached. They filled their coffers through shipbuilding many centuries ago, and are responsible for the vast majority of Persad’s ships. Curiously enough, their wealth was barely affected following the naval battles during the civil war, and they remain as rich as ever, leading other Houses both in Persad and elsewhere to stir rumors of magic and pacts made with spirits in return for everlasting wealth.

    “as high as honor”
    Desrosiers is an idealistic house, and known for a relatively friendly nature and courtly manners. They are equally well known, however, for thinking very highly of their own honor. Their sense of superiority is perhaps due to their favor with the Coronas and their fame as an knightly house with many a grand tale to tell. Many of its members have been known for a boisterous nature or daredevil tendencies in the pursuit of fame and glory.

    “death before dishonor”
    The Guillories are a wealthy house, which has given rise to the phrase “Gilt as a Guillory,” which they try to use as proof in arguments against other wealthy houses that they are the most wealthy house. More famous, however, is their high strung nature. They are easily offended and tend to squabble with each other only to turn on anyone as a whole who insults their family. In fact, they are now rather infamous for starting an inordinate amount of duels over challenged honor. However, they are often found around Coronas (perhaps favored due to their money), and pretend to be friendly with the Desrosiers while also passive-aggressively jostling for position.

    “none so fierce”
    Another hotblooded Lucenni family, House Morandi is also the least diplomatic of their peers. They frequently cause headaches for both Lucenna and Zhaoshang due to their greed and desire for more land, leading to a border feud with the Zhaoshangese House Liang. It is often a subject of debate among other Lucenni houses whether they are very clever or very stupid. Aggressive, cold, and rumored to be cannibals (or at least vampires), a Morandi always seems to have something to complain about. After Isabella married a Liang, the feud seemed to die down, only for former house head Carlotta to be assassinated, causing Isabella to put her new husband on trial for treason. Though the Liangs have (understandably) been blamed, the true brains behind the conspiracy are her aunt and uncle, who wish to claim Helle for themselves.

    “work their will”
    The name Tempesta might bring to mind storms and hurricanes, but the opposite is true. A calm house full of cool heads and sharp minds, it is not unusual to see a Tempesta sighing loudly while they suffer their more passionate peers. Other Lucenni houses often call them boring and hermitlike, but would not deny that dealings with Tempestas are often far faster and easier than with other houses.

    “we light the way”
    The Constantinous are among the oldest families in Nejem, as far as written records go. They claim to be the oldest surviving house, though this is impossible to prove for certain. In any case, they are certainly an ancient line, as evidenced by their old-world surname and stubborn use of such given names as well. Proud, severe, and holier than thou, most other houses tend to find them either very admirable or very annoying. A Constantinou will never let you forget their history (though conveniently leave out the less admirable parts), and they are eager to prove themselves by any means possible. It was one of their own who married the founder of House Haroun and Iliana’s son, Nasim, and they express staunch loyalty to the Harouns due to such old blood ties.

    “the most noble”
    House Kartal lost most of its family members in one of many naval battles during the civil war. What remains of the house is their last daughter and a host of bastards sired by uncles and brothers, who now come together under the Kartal name. This leaves House Kartal in a precarious position within society, and as a result they are looked down upon by most other Houses, and some Houses find House Kartal’s sheer survival through bastards to be offensive. This does not deter any member of House Kartal, however, who, despite their ranks being full of mostly bastards, still wish to uphold their words, and prove the other houses wrong.

    “we do not yield”
    House Sayed’s reputation has suffered terribly following the role they played in the civil war. The other great Houses of Nejem, who previously favoured them and viewed them with great trust, now look at them with great care and suspicion. House Sayed’s resourcefulness and predeliction for cunning leaves many other houses citing them as untrustworthy. The rumors were true, at least in part: Pericles Sayed and other house members were found to be conspiring with Theodosia Naguib's plans to overthrow House Haroun. Though few members were guilty, those found treasonous were executed and the remainder are regarded with suspicion.

    “we remember”
    House Yilmaz is known for hosting lavish, lengthy feasts that go on for days on end, and is perhaps most famous for how its members throw themselves fully into religious festivals and days of celebration, though most people say this is because House Yilmaz finds any excuse to be the centre of attention. They do not take kindly to being slighted, nor to being ignored. Take care when you cross a member of House Yilmaz, for rumour has it one of their ancestors hosted a party only to poison a vast majority of the partygoers over a perceived wrongdoing. Shortly after their house head and Master of Whispers was found dead, much of their money was stolen, leaving House Yilmaz far less rich than they were previously.

    “of unflinching heart”
    Of the Dvorjardian kingdoms and the noble families therein, the Vasilievs have been among the most successful. The family has ruled over Nenesht for seventy years…With the caveat that there have still been numerous changes of power over the years. Due to polygamy, its numbers of legitimate male heirs have long flourished…But all males inherit equally, which has led to bitter infighting between dozens of brothers and half-brothers. House Vasiliev’s history is one marked by victory over the rest of the world, but turmoil within, due to the treachery of relatives fighting bitterly for the throne. Their reputation, in a word, is ruthless; cultural taboos such as the guest right and kinslaying have been ignored by house members numerous times. Such is the price of survival in Dvorjard.

    Legend of the Black Hart

    A cautionary tale of Nenesht tells of a son who defied the wishes of his parents and meddled with dark magic. As punishment, he was transformed into a black deer. He was then shot during a hunt and accidentally eaten by his own family to punish him for his sins and, some say, to punish his family for not trying hard enough to stop him.

    “hear our thunder”
    Though claiming to be descendants of the Gardrikan sky god, the Solvkledds do not act particularly godly – not how Ilians might think of it, anyway. Due to social class in Gardrika being much less stratified, the royal family mingles easily with commoners. Rulers having multiple spouses and little importance created in legitimate versus bastard children have made the lineage confusing and at times questionable. This, however, has served them well: the Solvkledds are immensely popular among their people to the point that multiple house members have often had their own personal following. Though proud of their heritage, they cannot be said to be arrogant. By Ilian standards, they are quite laid-back, inelegant, and crass.

    Clan Juyin's ancestral home is the place the Dvorjardians now call Nenesht. Years ago, they were driven out, and have been trying to reclaim the land ever since. In recent years they have taken to living on Gardrika due to the marriage of one of their own to the former king, Harald. Known as hardy, no-nonsense, and straightforward, they still survive even if in smaller numbers than before. During the time of Norvik, they were a serious threat to Norviker peoples and one of the largest Mora'amyn clans. They are currently led by Temür of the Daguur family.
