The 13 Grand Houses

House Bacchae (connected to the Temple of the Held Keys, they are very heirarchical in their family and very secretive and small; they forward the shadow cults of The Plouti in secret, and are actually matrilineal, though no one would know it from the outside as they have positions of power in the Ecclesium)
House Eglantine (the lineage of the Temple of the Unmarred Heart, they are almost all clergy or Justicars)
House Favrelle (connected with the Temple of the Fiery Forge; many are guildmasters and clergy)
House Tremaine (connected with the Temple of the Relentless Fist; many military officers are from this family, few are clergy)
House Sinatra (
House Merlien (One of the oldest of the Grand Houses, their power and influence predate the civil war. Before the war they were not a particularly religious family – now they worship the Fist and the Heart in tandem, acting as the knights of the ruling Temple)
House Robard (connected to Temple of the Offering Palm, own great holdings in the colonies, as well as farms closer to hand to supply the city. The vast majority of the city’s produce and grain are grown on Robard owned farmland.)
