Arrakis Family originally hailed from the glorious city of Calis on Atamara but through time they have been relocated to Jariedma on East Continent. The reasons for the relocation were the problems the family had with proper heirs as they were assassinated by enemies, the family treasury being empty and the family's business on the verge of bankruptcy. Luckily, just a few heirs have managed to survive and have made their new headquarters in Jariedma. Years later, the grand mansion has been constructed in the Golden City of Darfix which became a new administrative center and a home for the Arrakis'.
The family and its nobility dates from the days that scholars don't remember and the time that wasn't sung by the bards. In those ancient times on a continent forgotten by both men and beast, a man rose from the peasants and declared himself a king. He was a barbarian known as Monachus Arrakis and from him originates the renowned family today. It's a family whose blood is hot and swords sharp and their honor never allows them to break the bonds of humanity. The majority of the family were warriors, raised through strict discipline and with steel in their hands, but there were likewise some less significant member rising to learn and profess trading and economy.
It is not known how the family made their way to the world-known islands, and the history of only one of the heirs of Monachus can be traced, while the fate of the others is unknown. The only heir of Monachus found himself on the sandy shores of an unkown continent. As he later found out, that continent was Atamara. And thus it became known to the world of men that the noble Arrakis family exists, and from Svarog Arrakis began the noble line of a new age and a new rise of the proud nobility. Svarog had four sons: Asterion - the oldest and the most restless one, Reginauld - the first to hold his family banner in a noble world, Boreal - the just, and Mythos - the youngest one.
Three of these nobles have been respected greatly enough and have formed their own House within the family. Descendants of the House of Boreal, House Mythos and House of Asterion still roam and fight to continue the tradition of their ancestry. These Houses vie for power within the Arrakis family, and seek to claim the Patronage of all Arrakis'. A new Patron of the family is usually coronated when he assumes this role. The current Patron of the family is Leopold of Niselur.
Boreal was the most renowned member of the family who was also the first to aspire to the rank of royalty among them. He was a man that reminded of Monachus like no other, and as such it was expected from his descendants to carry the same just and grandeur traits. He had two heirs although some claim that he had more children. The two were Dagobert and Alexanderos. Little is known of the former, while the latter lived enough to see his offspring come to age, raising his sons Leopold and Levon to young aristocrats. History remembers another member finding his way to this House through marriage, Anarion the Dalian, who has been a member of the Dalian aristocracy.
Mythos was bathed by the golden gaze of Ramsus, aspiring to great wealth and power. Under his leadership and by his wisdom the Ibladeshi hordes have overrun the South of East Island, marking the start of a new era. After his death, his only son Abraxas managed to save the family legacy by reforming the family's home in Jariedma. After Abraxas' heroic fall on the walls of Ibladesh, Gregorian became the only living member of this House. Since Gregorian was sentenced to battle for his life in the emptiness of Beluaterra the future was difficult for this House. Eventually, House of Mythos became extinct when Gregorian was slain by an assassin on East Continent.
Asterion's life was marked by heroic battles in the southern parts of Beluaterra. Under a banner of Riombara Asterion rose to heights he never achieved before, hence forever engraving his name in the tomes of the Arrakis family. He had two heirs, Palidor (the older) and Giskard (the younger) and Palidor had a son Baodouin who inherited his heritage after his fathers death in battle, while Giskard took his own life in service to Sartan. The decline of this House was at hand during the imperial wars of the Far East when war-scarred Baudouin decided to retire his House and cede all of his concessions.
A group of nobles that came to the family either through marriage or merit. All of them strive to make a glorious names for themselves, and receive the blessing from the Patron of the family to form their heritable lines.
These are only the recorded ones.
