RE: Canons of Sundaril
High Sundrili Nobility
the Noble House of Severalli
The Severalli Family is one of the oldest and most influential of all the noble families. Queen Isolde, the grandmother of the current queen, was from this family. Their motto is "To Guide and Protect."
BORN MAY 1021 • TAMSIN EGERTON • SUBPLOT: NONE
Dowager Duchess of Tyrish; Intelligent and calculating, her ambition knows no bounds. Currently pregnant with the future duke or duchess of Tyrish.
the Noble House of Redalan
The House of Redalan is the youngest and their duchy was passed to them from the Seraphins once they achieved the throne. Before they were dukes and duchesses, the Redalan house was one of knights. Since becoming dukes through loyalty and valor in battle, they have found themselves in a rift with the Lesser House of Severalli, primarily because of a broken betrothal and humiliation. Their motto is, "Always Rising."
BORN NOVEMBER 1034 • TYLER POSEY • SUBPLOT: NONE
Duke of Namaril; son of Aoife Seraphin and Michael Redalan.
the Noble House of Istatio
The House of Istatio rose to power during the reign of King Talan Seraphin, rising in rank from originally being a county to now a rather moderate sized duchy. Many claim that the grandfather of the current Duke Lysander only gained his title due to favoritism, but the house has thrived for the past two generations producing valiant knights in the past as well. Their motto is "Righteousness before Justice."
Duke Lysander Istatio
BORN JUNE 1005 • RYAN REYNOLDS • SUBPLOT: NONE

the Noble House of Mordonne
The House of Mordonne is a small one, having been plagued with barren women and infertile men for generations. The Marquess was lucky to have two sons rather than none for all that his wife was from the lovely House of Havarilli. Still, a secret lurks within this house that could threaten Sundaril once more from within and knock the Seraphins from their tightly clenched throne. Their motto is: "Ab Inito Ad Victoriam" or, literally: "From beginning to victory" showing their desire to see things through. The last three Marquesses died tragically: consumption, murder, and alcohol poisoning This has left the estate in the hands of the son of the late Princess Aoife.
BORN MAY 1031 • PLAYER'S CHOICE • SUBPLOT: NONE
Son of Princess Aoife, illegitimate but status has since changed by royal decree; betrothed to Corrine Severalli as an insult to his status.
the Noble House of Gavlin
The Gavlin Family is one of the oldest and more influential of the noble families. No doubt one family that has certainly spread into royal families by sheer idealism and their ability to spot a good cause to support, the Gavlins have lent their daughters to such notable families as the Moreaus and the Seraphins. In fact, Isabella Seraphin, the mother of the first Seraphin king as well as the mother to a queen of Farengalia, was a Gavlin. Also, Lady Capella Severalli, mother of the current Duke Severalli, was a Gavlin as well, and Charles' older sister. Their motto is "To Heaven and Further."

the Noble House of Pewter
The Pewters have had a slow and steady climb to the Marquis they now hold. Many of the Pewters of the past have held positions close to the Kings and Royal Family, offering their fair and just advice. The current Marquess, Nicholas, remarried after his wife's tragic death to a Listonese woman named Augustine, once the Duchess Greystone . Born the second son in this generation, his brother and sister in law were killed in a fire, leaving him in charge of his niece, who he then pawned off to the king as a mistress for favor. Their motto is "Steady and True."

the Noble House of Stafford
The Staffords have ever found themselves in an awkward position after coming into their noble wings after the Lion Wars. The first betrothal around went horrendous, with Emilia leaving her groom at the altar. The second betrothal ended in a wedding to the king's ex mistress at the behest of the king. The fact that the wedding was conducted with a pregnant bride was not something the groom was pleased about. Recently, Robert has been finding his faith to be causing issues in his marriage in more ways than one. Their motto is "Ever Strong, Ever Pure."

The Worthingtons are another new family, though they quickly tied themselves to one of the elder families (the Moranins) via marriage. Despite this tie, the verbal battles between the Moranins and the Worthingtons are starting to threaten all manner of peace between the nobility and the king might soon have to do something about it. Their motto is "With Peace and Faith."

RE: Canons of Sundaril
Lower Sundrili Nobility
the Noble House of Lonsigh
The House of Lonsigh is more south than the Northern lands, effectively making them part of the North to most of the southern Sundrili and part of the south to the people of the North. Nevertheless, this family is still secretly carries on their pagan religious practices.

the Lesser House of Severalli
The Lesser House of Severalli is composed, thus far, of only four individuals: Aryith Severalli (nee Il'Nanna), Dameon Severalli, and their children. Dameon himself was, prior to his engagement and marriage to Ayrith, the heir to the Severalli duchy. However, upon deciding that he would rather marry Aryith, the King's Fool and a newly made Baroness, instead of Katherine Redalan, the only sister of the Duke of Namaril and an outstanding noblewoman, Dameon forsook the duchy and continued with his marriage to Aryith. The result is a current feud between the Lesser House of Severalli and the Noble House of Redalan. Their motto is "Love Conquers All."

the Noble House of Briarcrest
The House of Briarcrest is an ancient and favored house.

the Noble House of Redwater
The House of Redwater received their lands in 873 C.E. from the Seraphin family as a reward for valor at sea. Their claim to these lands have been met with resistance from the House of Eidolon since the early 900s, citing unclear boundaries and asking the Redwaters that they renounce them. It has been almost a 150 years since the feud began and it has yet to show signs of slowing down. Their motto is, "Honorable and Highest."

the Noble House of Eidolon

Receiving their lands in 875 C.E., they have accosted the Redwater family for their adjacent lands ever since. The feud turns nastier with each passing year, though it is rumored that the current heir has taken a liking to the Baron of Redpine's daughter. What could possibly go wrong? Their motto is, "Each to the Other True."

The House of Crosswood, despite their low status, is an incredibly renowned and respected house. Their roots as bladesmiths go back centuries, the name "Crosswood" synonymous with excellence and quality in swordmaking.

Owned only by ancient and wealthy houses in the upper nobility, Crosswood swords are only used for special occasions such as coronations and executions.
