The last remaining living Nobles of Tempest Family. Sol Tempest is the current head of the family and the dominate line of the Tempest genealogy. However Luna and Brigitte's distance from Beluaterra leave their destiny free to them.
The Tempest family history starts on the continent of Beluaterra ages before now. It is rumored that the very first Tempest was sparked into existence from a violent lighting storm on a snowy mountain peak. Folklore describes Bolt Tempest, the founder of the family as a born master of the air elements, taking command of the wind and lighting to forge a great and noble family. However as time passed, less Tempest children would be born with elemental gifts. By The Seventh Age of Beluaterra the family had descended to become lesser nobles with their last remaining modest estate in Yipinalke.
The Seventh Age saw the birth Brigitte and her nieces of Sol and Luna, sisters of the Tempest family. While Sol was born with a gift of primal fire, Brigitte and Luna were born with no discernible gifts. The sisters would form a bond despite the wishes of their parents. Without a gift Luna was the black sheep of her family. Luna would desert her homeland and leave for East Continent while Brigitte was married off to a lord of Dwilight.
Sol continues her support of Thalmarkin until the secession of Vordul Sanguinis and swears her allegiance the Emperor Xlair Silverblade. As a reward for her Loyalty the Emperor would grant her lands the region of Ippetimbal and proclaim her Baroness Sol Tempest.
Sol would remain a subject of the Empire of Vordul Sanguinis until the loss of her friend Svari Storme would cause her to take refuge in Nothoi.
Luna leaves Beluaterra to forge her own destiny arriving on the East Continent during The Seventh Age. She arrives in Shadowdale, and becomes a patron of the Grey university in Karbala. After two years in Shadowdale she swears her fealty and knowledge to the Shadow King Lindow Moonsun. Having served the Shadow King Faithfully Luna becomes Grey Exarch of the Shadow Legion at age 19.
As her husband was a Lord within the realm of Sol, Brigitte would become a dame of Sol during the Sixth Decade of Dwilight. When Brigitte's husband died of old age and the estate left to his children Lady Tempest was left to her own devices. Brigitte would hastily move to Unterstorm pledge herself a Knight of Sol and joined the Solaran Strike.
Seeking glory Brigitte would make her way west to join the realm of Tol Goldora and serve Navarch Solomon Greybrook.

These surveyors have no claim to the Tempest name, they simply bear the name as a convenience for their work. These commoners often perform contract survey works for the Tempest Family Aristocracy, collecting information from regions that may be to far away for a Noble to travel.

One of the few things the Tempest sisters Sol and Luna shared was their love of Geography. Studying regions, surveying the land and then scribing their own maps. They would often get into heated discussions over strategic locations, notable features and even borders. The two would toil and debate endlessly over their work with the end result being maps that could only be described as a labour of love.
The Cartography Archive contains all the completed works of the Tempest Family.
The Tempest Family is open to scribing you a map however they have some rules:
- Request must be made in game to a Noble and in an appropriate manner.
- One of the Family Members must be able to reach the region in question, its hard to make a map of somewhere you have never been.
- Depending on the distance an Adventurer may be sent to the region for the survey instead of a Noble making the trip.
- The Noble or Lord making the request is to graciously host the surveyor regardless if they are a Noble or Commoner.
- The Noble or Lord making the request will need some sort of summary of the region in question.
All maps are an artistic representation of the region and/or city. They may not conform to all game standards (Dragon's are not that common!) and should not be taken as irrefutable fact for the purposes of roleplay.
