House of the Falcon
When the last emperor laid a curse on all the houses, the Falcon veiled their own banner in the Senate and left their lands. They were, of course, taken. The Falcon spent their time on the road, learning from the peasants. In recent history, they attacked from the woods, took new lands as their own, with the support of the veth. The Falcon unveiled their own house and the Senate decided the bold move was to be accepted. Their honour was restored, but they made many enemies from the nobility.
The Falcon value Courage as their highest virtue. They are the bravest, willing to say ‘no’, to control their urges and to help others.
The Thorne Family are the ruling family, who led the Falcon out of society, and then returned them back to it.
The Askhen Family are the most cooperative with the veth, their numbers bolstered by blooding those who prove themselves.
The other houses are Krev, Sinjin and Thali.
