House Freyr “In the heat of winter.”

overview

lord Vulcan Freyr

heir Jupiter Freyr
seat Caer Scion

For over five hundred years, House Freyr has ruled the Highlands with an iron fist. It does not always make them the most popular family around. People know that their reign is fair and just though. They only punish when the accused is proven guilty. Once they have enough proof, punishment is harsh. But it is all with the well-being of the people in mind. And for that reason, they respect the House regardless of their strict policy. To ensure the Highlands continue to be the strong entity they are, the Lord is assisted by his small council. Members of the council are chosen by the Lord and are often people that have proved to be trustworthy and experienced in important matters such as warfare, intelligence and bookkeeping.

Caer Scion is known for their extremely high quality weapons and armor. The Cursed Reach and the Iron Ridge provide much needed raw materials like iron and carbon, but also obsidian. The harsh conditions in the mountain range, being snow and ice, are ideal for another expensive resource to develop deep beneath the rock. Crystal. With the proper skill and tools, crystal can be crafted into breathtaking necklaces and rings. Because the material is more rare, there is not much room for making mistakes while practicing. Therefore, the gems are only trusted to the most skilled craftsmen. This means that their main source of income is still the weapons and armor, which they export throughout the realm.




politics

liege Royal house Aldyr
vassals house corbin, house laighin
alliances House Vigneron, House Sylversword


The bond with house Aldyr is quite rocky from time to time. Mainly because north detests south. Something that lives as strongly under the Freyr’s as under the people that live in the Highlands. But it’s a bond that is uphold for as long as memory serves.

The relationship with both of these houses is different. While house Vigneron is connected to them through marriage they are supporting them in whatever may happen in the future. It’s a strong and important alliance that runs through Jupiter Freyr his wedding to Ophelia Vigneron.  House Sylversword isn’t connected by blood, but by the spoken word of Lady Adeena and the former lord Apollo. Both of the regions so close to each other, means that they support each other in matters that are more close to the people living in both of their regions.


city


Built against the northern part of the Iron ridge, the city itself is naturally protected by its peaks. They are surrounded by empty landscapes which are covered in snow most of the time. The Silver Tear finds its source near the city, running right alongside the city walls, providing them with fresh water. Along the city walls multiple watchtowers watch our over the plains to keep enemies out.

One of the most prominent buildings is the castle. Located in the middle of the city surrounded by another wall. The vast majority of the houses in Caer Scion are built out of limestones, decorated with lumber. The houses vary in size and in looks as well the more prominent houses are in way better shape than the houses of the lower districts. A part of the city near the castle is held by the barracks, they fall outside the castle walls. Training fields nearby. As far as shops, inns, taverns, blacksmiths and brothels go, they are spread out through the city.




family

The Freyr family seems like a family that is rather stoic. They don’t really show that much love or affection towards each other. Not in public at least. Yet they would put themselves on the line for their people at any  given moment. They rely on each other, even if they don’t show it.  


history

Once upon a time, in times long past, Ivan of House Elovyr was banished by his father. This was, in the eyes of the young man, completely unjust. Never had he done something wrong, yet he was punished for a crime he had not yet committed. But, he knew that there was no use denying his fate. Assembling his few people against the army of the King, would only result in a certain death. And thus, he traveled North. He kept going North, all the way up to the Highlands. The snow covered the area, leaving it a perfect white. That’s where they settled; shielded by snow. Caer Scion, home to the rightful heir, was set up on that day. And it was a day that they would always remember. Up until this day, February 26th is celebrated as the day of the “First Stone”, where the city’s first stone was placed, to accommodate their new city. He changed his last name, separating himself from the traitor that was his father.

There is no other House in history that has been treated as unfairly as House Freyr. Descending from a banished royal heir, the House in the North has a deep hatred for the people living in the Southern regions. Not once, but twice they have been betrayed by other Houses. They were the first House to raise their army against the Bone Sorcerer King, and in doing so risking the lives of good men. All for the greater good; as they had foreseen the disaster that was about to happen. They were right. Freyr knew this, the North knew this, but the South was stubborn as it always had been.

For this reason, the feelings of dislike are completely mutual. Usually, the Southerners are not quite thrilled when tales of the North spread throughout the realm. Because to this day still, House Freyr holds on to their claim to the throne. Especially after the rebellion. Alas, they were not rewarded for their efforts. Once more they were sent back North. The invaders, with their dragons, had enforced a man who had no right to claim the throne to begin with. With the power of the beasts to support him, and the fact that it had been the dragon riders who had eradicated the army of the dead in the end being to his advantage, Loran Aldyr was crowned King. After this horrendous insult, Lord Freyr returned home and started plotting his next move. He was not willing to accept his defeat and losing the throne twice.

The same goes for all the descendants of the House. Children of the Lord and Lady, and especially their heirs, are raised with the same disdain of the traitorous South. The belief that they are still the rightful rulers of Avalance is passed down the bloodline to this day. And with Apollo on the seat of the Lord, it is more likely than ever that this House will move forward. For in Apollo, one can see the original sinner, he who had traveled North and set up House Freyr. They have the same pale blue eyes, gazing into the endless landscape of snow, plotting how to get back what is rightfully theirs.

After the birth of Mercury Freyr, Apollo his focus seemed to shift from his duties towards his wife and son. So he decided that he wasn’t fit right now to remain a lord, his mind had shifted of constantly being focused on everything that involved being a Lord to his newborn son and wife. Thereby  discussed with both his brothers that he would resign his position so one of them to take over. With taking into consideration that Jupiter never really wanted to be the High Lord, Vulcan was pushed forward as the next inline. Hereby being legitimized by the head of the house. Right before the conclusion of Jupiter becoming master of Alliances, an letter from house Vigneron came, summoning Jupiter to the Evergreen. With that in mind Apollo and his older brother stepping up he resigned from his duty and went on a journey with his wife and son.
