The name Teresi is rather well known, for a minor noble house. It is a name that is well associated with metal working and with weapons in particular. There are those who say that in the wake of the last Head of House stepping down the house will fall, but so far that has been false. Time will tell.

Origins

House Teresi has been standing for a respectable number of years - they are not the oldest house, by any means, but they have been a steady presence ever since their founding. They are not the most powerful, either. They are not a major house, and never have been. But there are many houses that would not be as strong as they are without House Teresi’s quiet strength.

It is probable that Teresi branched off of another merchant house - perhaps even a foreign one. From their founding on Teresi has been known for its metal work. Primarily Teresi deals in weaponry, and they do take commissions of personal designs. They have always taken great pride in their work, and have experimented in ways of metal working to produce the strongest and best lasting weapons they are able to.

Eight years ago, the head of house stepped down due to his deteriorating health, and his eldest daughter took control of the house. Since then she has dealt with the day-to-day tasks of running the house, with her father acting only as an advisor when she needs one. It took her time to earn respect among their trading partners as a woman, but she did so, and while their position is a little precarious beneath Cassimer, life is not so bad.

Reputation

House Teresi has a reputation for keeping its hands as clean as possible. They do not deal in technicalities if they can help it, and if anything dips into illegality they will not feed into it. Astraea is very careful to avoid anything that will get them dragged down, especially given their position beneath Cassimer.

Known For

This house is known for their superior craftsmanship on weapons that they design. House Teresi absolutely always passes to the eldest of the line, regardless of gender. In many previous generations when a girl has inherited the seat, her husband has essentially taken the reins and controlled the house in her name.

Members

Astraea Teresi
Astraea's Husband [Want Ad]

Joining

Taking a want ad is an option, or slotting in somewhere that makes sense. Astraea has younger siblings, and probably some aunts/uncles/cousins as well.

Relations With Other Lineages

Teresi tries to keep a positive relationship with as many other lineages as possible, as it is in their best interest to be on good terms with those who may wish to buy their wares. That in mind, working with Marcus gives her a bit of a headache despite the fact that she does so politely and without question every time.
