The Aristocracy is the nobility of the House. The division involves the management of House legalities that include laws, property, and decorum. The Aristocracy is responsible for penning edicts, maintaining legal policies, storing artifacts, and managing internal politics that generally do not involve the military. The Aristocracy ultimately derives its power from the Lord and Lady of the House, along with the Empire, and the Order. As such, it represents all these entities throughout most dealings. The Aristocracy employs legal representatives, knights called Templars, and deputies called Tribunes. It also has its own dedicated team of scholars and researchers that work in the effort of updating laws and containing artifacts, be they dangerous or inert. In the most dire of situations, the Aristocracy can invoke a “crusade,” which unites the different aspects of the House, organizing the structure in such a way so as to commit all forces to a given endeavor, be it war or something else requiring a drastic amount of force.

The heart of the house’s longstanding status in Imperial society, the Academy facilitates instruction in a variety of topics both magical and mundane. Comprised of talented mages and scholars, the primary goal behind the Academy’s existence is to preserve and distribute knowledge, be it how to cast a complicated spell or how to learn to read. The house has long been legally allowed to study necromancy, which makes it a popular destination for adventurous aspiring students; in addition to that, proscribed topics such as daedric worship and shadow magic are practiced by those of the house with darker inclinations, though well-hidden from the public eye.

The staff is one of the most vital facets of the house. While house staff are seldom bound for glory, without them, the house would crumble to nothing. The house boasts a large day staff, many of which are oblivious to the house’s secret, as well as an extensive night staff which helps ensure the veil is upheld at all costs. The staff is comprised of well-paid servants that ensure a house of this size functions in an efficient manner, from maids to stablehands to skilled laborers and everything in between. Personal attendants to the Ravnore family also fall under this umbrella, as do blood servants who ensure the vampires of the house can discreetly feed. The staff’s influence extends across the entire grounds, including the tribe of gypsies that lives in the forests. Finally, the staff attends to the comfort of guests who have come seeking employment in the house and watch over them until they have reached a final appointment, be it to the staff itself or another division.
Day & Night Staff
The house boasts a large contingent of servants, employees, and specialists that make up two halves of the house, the day and night staff.
