House Riegan
The leading house of the Leicester Alliance and descendants of one of the
10 Elites. In the Crescent Moon War of 881, they spearheaded the move
toward independence from the Kingdom, as well as the establishment of a
republic by its former vassals. They have held the esteemed responsibility
of leading the Alliance roundtable ever since.

The position of this house of dukes relies on the noble rank bestowed
upon it by the Kingdom, well before the Alliance's founding. The current
Duke Riegan's heir, Godfrey, died in an accident while on duty. While he
did leave behind a surviving daughter, she is presently unaccounted for.

House Goneril
Descendants of one of the 10 Elites, it is a military house that is chiefly
tasked with military strikes and defense against the Almyran army, mostly
due to its territory's position in the east. Lord Holst, the next head of
the house, is widely renowned as the Alliance's bravest general.

House Ordelia
A house of counts with land in the east of Leicester territory. In 1167 it
was involved in House Hrym's rebellion, and the Empire retaliated by
repeatedly meddling in the house's internal affairs, leading to a sharp
decline in its noble standing.

House Gloucester
Descendants of one of the 10 Elites, this house of counts hails from
southern Leicester territory. The current head of house is ambitious,
excels at public relations, and has an influential voice among the five
noble families with voting rights at the Leicester Alliance Roundtable,
second only to House Riegan.

House Edmund
A house of margraves with land in the north of Leicester territory.
Its beneficial trade policies, emphasizing fair use of its personal harbors,
have awarded the house a great deal of clout, to such a degree that it
was eventually accepted into the ranks of the Five Great Lords of the
Alliance. Their current head of house is a renowned orator.

House Daphnel
Descendants of one of the 10 Elites and formerly among the Five Great
Lords of the Alliance, it lost much power due to internal discord. For the
last several generations, no head of House Daphnel has born a Crest.
In spite of this, it still maintains its status as a noble family.
