Kythiran


House Viromaro

Banner: A golden flower on a red field

Ancestral home: Castle Fuertera

Motto: Blood and Gold

The House Viromaro originates from the Riverlands. It is one of the Great Houses of Minecraftia. They currently rule over the Kythiran Empire, and were the founders of the Kingdom of Kythira at the end of the First Era.

Having the wealth of the Kythiran Empire behind them, the Viromaro family is the richest in Minecraftia. The current patriarch of the family is Emperor Coetzeeclan Viromaro. His father, Squarepantstoo Viromaro disappeared in the Narrow Sea during the early Third Era, whilst his sister, Poppedijn Viromaro disappeared during the Great Grief. The Viromaro family has some blood ties with the Dragestein family, ranging back to the First Era. Recent conflicts such as the Dervich Incident have however strained this relationship between the two rulers.

The Viromaros are known for their need of territorial expansion and search of wealth. However, they are also known for their excessive spending on the formation of more palaces and enriching themselves, making some to describe their rule as a kleptocracy. The construction of a royal yacht, plated with gold, has been source of whispered mockery by the empire's elite. They have acquired most of their wealth by taking directly from the Kythiran Treasury, leaving the latter to one of the smallest in the world. They however claim that, since they embody the Kythiran state, this is permissible.

Motto: Progress through Destruction

The House Roterstein originates from the Riverlands. It is one of the Great Houses of Minecraftia. During the Second Era, the head of the House, Whazajottom, became a King when he founded Redstonia on the Peninsula of Peril. The House was, together with House Hurdræber, a primary cause of the Great Grief and, although Redstonia survived the Grief in full, their nation-state nevertheless eventually crumbled.

As the Third Era began, the brothers Corspin and Whazajottom Roterstein were offered to colonize and explore the lands west of the Mediori Sea by Kythira, after the fortress of Mörkren was discovered, making Whazajottom the High-Lord of the new Golden Province of Ardoragh.

Today, the Roterstein family are one of the strongest families in Minecraftia, and with Whazajottom Roterstein becoming the Crown Prince of Kythira, they are considered by some to already be the most powerful family in the Kythiran Empire. They are also considered to be the third richest family of Minecraftia.

The Rotersteiners are known for their ruthlessness and willingness to destroy all what stands in their way. The current patriarch, Whazajottom Roterstein, is a clear example of this, whilst his brother, Corspin Roterstein, is seen as a more reluctant leader, whom focuses more on trade in his city of Kreonix. Contrasting their ruthlessness, they are also known for their great hospitality for those whom pledge allegiance to them.

House Dragestein

Banner: A white dragon head on a red field

Ancestral home: Castle Blackwater

Motto: Eastwards and Upwards

The House Dragestein originates from the Riverlands. It is one of the Great Houses of Minecraftia. The family lived in the castle Blackwater for the First- and Second Era, but gave their fortress to the newly formed Kythiran Empire during the Third Era, in exchange for lands east of the Narrow Sea, where they, under Borous Von Dragestein, would form the Imperius Reich.

Today House Dragestein is one of the most powerful families in Minecraftia, and the most powerful in Imperius. They are considered the second richest family in Minecraftia.

The Dragestein are stuck in a great rivalry with the Viromaros, but have to keep diplomatic ties with them out of fear of a Rotersteiner Kythira, something they are greatly against, blaming the Rotersteiners for the Great Grief. Interestingly enough, the Viromaro and Dragestein families are related, making Borous a Kythiran Prince and fourth in line to the Kythiran Throne, after Coetzeeclan, Whazajottom and Corspin.


House Mace

The House Mace is currently under the leadership of Catman Mace, and is a noble Imperian House. Their origins are unknown, but legend has it they are from another world entirely.
