The Family Home
The family home is an expansive manor overlooking the harbor in Askileon. Once the site of a desperate escape for the woman who would give birth to the founders of the Schwarzherzig Family, Jonsu Himoura, the Schwarzherzigs later acquired the land and turned it into a monument to the success of their line, a phoenix emerging from the Silver City of Askileon, a temple of their triumph.
Fiercely loyal to their bloodline, the family follows an odd mixture of ancient family tradition and Lurian customs. Educated from an early age in a mix of history, politics, military science, and the arcane, the members of the Schwarzherzig family are a varied, but ambitious group of nobles. Raised primarily in exile, following their mother on her many adventures about Dwilight and beyond, when they became of age, they returned triumphantly to their homeland, securing a manor in Askileon and dispersing to pursue their careers.
The Schwarzherzigs are a cadet branch of the now deceased bloodline of the Himoura Family (old account). A bloodline of old Atamara, now since relocated to Luria, and have fully embraced the Imperial Culture.
The Schwarzherzigs, through Sevastian, also hold ties to the Guile Family.
|The eldest son, King of Sun Hall, Legatus, Expeditionary, Excommunicatus.|
|The Second Son, cast adrift to Beluaterra. Once a zealot, lording over the shady offices of the Inquisition of Obia'Syela, Adolphus glimpsed the truth of the nature of the faithful. Now condemned and outcast, Adolphus is a man of the shadows, and a fell sorcerer of the Morgul Order.|
|A shrewd politician, a man of refinement and ambition. Twin to his sister Aquila.|
|Rebel. Psychopath. Harbinger. Aquila's bloody destiny shaped the future of the Colonies. Unable to be killed but once, she died twice upon the fields of Abaka, and then walked to Arak Castle, never to be seen again.|
|Found locked away beneath the palace of Alowca, Mordiggian's origins are a mystery. The most pressing question is, what would prompt one such as Aquila to lock a man away, instead of killing him?|
