The nobles of family Greybrook claim they come from a long line of seafaring highborn, making their name in variety of professions from military work and politics to be finally awarded with the title of noble family upon the death of Charles Greybrook. With their ancestral home in Giask, Greybrook nobles are now present in numerous realms across the continents. Notable traits of the Greybrook family include a good training and grounding in military affairs, politics, socialising and a desire for unique items - embracing their heritage as traders as collectors of times gone by. Nevertheless, as with every family, each member is different in their desires and beliefs but all commit to upholding the family name. As per tradition, when a noble commits to an continent, their focus is entirely on where they live and the family gives them the autonomy to grow, thrive or wither. For better or for worse, this is the Greybrook way.
Look over the horizon to find your fortune. Whether there is honour, glory or disaster, you will never know until you look.

Solomon Greybrook is the leader of family Greybrook. Starting from humble origins in Giask, Solomon obtained a decorated military career in Luria Nova advancing through the ranks facing the rogue hordes as Earl of Dantooine. Believing in the opportunity in the west after Dantooine was over-run, Solomon became Founder, former Stratarch General and Ruler of Tol Goldora. For the majority of his life in Tol Goldora, Solomon worked tirelessly to ensure that Tol Goldorans returned to the Farrowlands during the continental spanning Gold Sea Conflict. Now with the war's end, Solomon looks to guide the Oligarchy into a new chapter where the realm can thrive.

Ferdinand died at the peak of the war between Obia'Syela and the Novan/Vale alliance at the battle of Glongin. A true martyr for his cause, Ferdinand will never be forgotten.

Alexander too wished to break away from the ancestral home and found himself in Perleone. Making his presence quietly known, he rose through the ranks of the civil service and was granted ambassadorship of Perleone and the city of Al Arab. Serving the city for years, Alexander grew greatly dissatisfied with the Perleoni Empire and their involvement in the continental war. As a strike of defiance, the former governor defected to the brief realm of Anraheim. Wishing to leave the south, Alexander advised in Eponllyn as Ambassador and Count of Morshes for the Phoenix Queen and King Ryndhal. After the King was protested out of office for pursuing peace with the south, Alexander left Eponylln with a heavy guilt. This drove Alexander to give up his worldly possessions and duel Ragnvald de la Fere to prove his innocence. In a spur of luck or undiscovered skill, Alexander killed Ragnvald in a death duel. Finally relieved of his guilty and innocence, Alexander retired back to Dwilight where he now serves Solomon.

Note 1): I play each character as a different branch of the Greybrook family. What this ultimately means is that each character exists in their own continent and cares little for what else goes on beyond that said continent. While they may know of other continents or even other members of family Greybrook, each character's relationships and interactions are based on the relationships they physically form or inherit from IC reasons.
Note 2): Information shared as part of this wiki family is for my own record keeping but for other players to enjoy. I urge the strongest balance of IC and OOC divide when viewing it. My characters may refer to parts of the wiki IC, this makes sense. However, if your character wouldn't know about a event that occurred with that character, please don't abuse it.
