House An – The An dynasty is one of the oldest and most powerful on Xin’s World, it was the An house that unified the Sun Lit lands and formed the Empire of Light, it is a Matriarchal House though at times through out its history there have been male rulers when no daughter was avalible. The house though is known for having several ‘mad’ empress’s, this appears to be a genetic trait though to date there has been no firm proof of this matter.
House Wei – A major house of the sun lit lands they once were the second largest land holders however after the formation of the empire they became the primary advisors to the empress’s that would follow. During the reign of Kitsuna Li house Wei suffered greatly as it was one of the few houses that refused to simply ‘toe’ the line.
House Cho – House Cho was one of the largest houses of the Twilight lands, it aimed to merge itself with house Li through marriage, this happened with the wedding of Meili’Cho and Ju’Li and their son would have become heir to both houses thus leading to a merger of the clans. However Kitsuna Li’s betrayal lead to the collapse of the house for 25 years, it was not until Kitsuna’s reign was ended that the house was restored.
House Li – Once one of the most powerful twilight clan houses House Li was known for its mastery of engineering and the prowess of its armed forces, for almost 18 generations it was the only twilight house to never suffer a major setback in its raids against the sun lit lands and it’s territorial claims held wide areas of mineral wealth. Tian’Li had arranged for a union between his house and house Cho through the marriage of his oldest son Ju’Li as the first steps in creating what he opened would be the ‘Twilight Empire’ to rival that of the Empire of the Sun, however the ambition of his younger son and Ju’Li’s twin Kitsuna would see that this never came to be. Instead Kitsuna killed his father and force his older brother to abdicate his claim before waging a brutal and effective war that ended with him being crowned Emperor of the World. The House would hold this claim for 14 years before a combined force of Unity, Confederate and Independent soldiers ended his brutal reign. Much of the house was devastated by the resulting backlash against it even though Empress Xin has ruled that Ju is once again the ruler of the house, its holdings are very much diminished. That being said it has become one of the Empires foremost experts in orbital construction and design.
