House Moriamis

House Moriamis

House Moriamis was once a notable house of Glantri that was known for their work in alchemy and artifice. The suffered a series of setbacks over the centuries and fell into obscurity. The small house had ownership of a track of land that was necessary for the soon to be Prince Malachie du Marais' plan to create a Principality that was a haven for Lycanthropes of all stripes. He married the  Vicomtesse de Malinbois, Dame Diane de Moriamis, to complete his plan. The house has continued to lanquish in obscurity behind Prince Malachie du Marais and his House, House Marais, which he used the wealthier holdings of House Moriamis to elevate his house.

Notable Members

House Moriamis as an Organization

House Moriamis once held a position as an affluent and influential house, its members having access to a wide range of benefits. However, since the days of the Arcanist, the house has become factured and divided in resources and loyalties. Currently the Vicomtesse labors to undo this decline and to unite her house once more; a daunting task that will require the infusion of new blood in the form of loyal agents and trustworthy allies.

House Moriamis Duties

Agents of the House must act in a manner that reflects well on the House in their personal time. The House also expects favors and tasks to be performed by its agents when called upon. Whatever the specific requirements this normally equates to, on average, at least 10 hours per week working on task assigned by the House. Agents of the House are forbidden from developing close allainces or contacts with anyone the House considers an enemy or rival without express dispensation from the House; after all sometimes a spy is needed.
