House Background

History

(For the old history and backgrounds of the Maridon of Fornux and the Maridon of Gemini, I refer you to the pages House Maridon and House Maridon (Gemini))

After a life of twelve years as an outcast, travelling the galaxies looking for a place to settle, Odhran Canaigh, then still known as Odhran Maridon, daughter of Awena Maridon, came to the planet of Alpheratz in the galaxy Capricorn. Here she found shelter with a local noble family of ancient blood, the Canaigh, who did not know, nor cared, about her past. They simply saw a young girl in desperate need of a home and decided to take her in as a servant.

Two years later, it became clear that the Canaigh matriarch, Lady Sedemay Canaigh, would not have any daughters to continue her bloodline. The Lady had fallen ill with a serious illness, one from which she would never recover. It was then, in the hour of desperate need for an heir, that she called the young servant girl to her sickbed. She had come to love the girl as her own daughter and, after giving it much thought, she had decided to adopt the girl as her heir, provided she married the Lady’s youngest son. This was much to the discontent of her two other sons, who had hoped to inherit equal parts of her fortune. Henceforth, Odhran Maridon was known as Odhran Canaigh. After the Lady Sedemay's death, Odhran inherited the Canaigh estate and the title of Lady.

In the fourteen years since they had parted, Awena Maridon had not been in direct contact with her daughter. Still hiding in the shadows in Gemini, at the side of her beloved husband Daigotsu Takahide, she carefully monitored Odhran’s life. When she learned that Odhran had successfully inherited the estate and title of Lady of an ancient, but fairly unknown family, she did nothing but smile. All along, she had known that her girl would find a place, far away from prosecution, amongst people who did not know, where the Maridon could thrive and find peace… for as long as they wished.

Awena had been preparing for this day for a long time, ever since she found her way back to life. Aged fifteen, she used the hidden laboratories and scientists of the Daigotsu in an unsuccessful attempt to remove the taint from her blood. After a year of research, she managed to isolate the taint within her own blood, but she found that she could never remove the taint from her bloodline once it had settled in. She could, however, manipulate the taint to use it to her advantage, rather than have it run completely wild. After testing several variants extensively, about three years after the start of her research, she engineered the taint in such a way that, even though it still had to be contained by the use of jade to stop it from running wild, it was no longer capable of turning one into a complete monster. Instead, the variant of the taint Awena had produced would only slightly modify a human body. It would also stop the original taint from affecting the ones with the new variant in their blood. However, she had devised it in such a way that it would only be active in a female body, leaving the males unaffected by either form of the taint. Awena then proceeded to apply this new variant of the taint to herself, ensuring that her progeny from that moment on would be safer from the taint. Over time, she started to pick up on small, hardly noticeable changes in her body. Her canines became slightly more pronounced and considerably pointier. Her muscles became stronger and she found herself light on her feet. Above anything else, she felt more energetic than ever before and she would find that, as the years passed, she would not age as much as she should have. She was happy with the results, and when Odhran was born a few years later, Awena was delighted to find that the girl was free from the original taint.

Only a few years later, the Maridon would find themselves hunted again after an attempt to establish their own kingdom in Gemini. It was then that Awena decided to send her daughter away, in the hope of finding a better place to live, while she remained in the shadows, at the side of her great love.

On the same day she inherited the Canaigh estate, Odhran married the former Lady’s youngest son, Ferdaid. With him, she would continue both the Canaigh bloodline and the Maridon bloodline, along with the modified taint in her genes. A year later, Morwyn Canaigh was born, ensuring the future of the House. It was under her rule that the House first ascended to the galactic stage.

The Modified 'Taint'

The 'taint' is an evil mystical power, spread by the Dark Lord Fu Leng amongst his worshippers. The taint corrupts minds and, if embraced, it has the ability to turn ordinary people into monsters. In the long term, the original taint will cause the tainted to lose control of themselves, and become submissive to the taint's power and will. The taint can be countered by wearing jade, but it can never be completely cured.

Awena Maridon was able to change this taint into something useful. This modified taint is genetically transferable, rendering its subject immune to the original taint. In the males of the bloodline, the modified taint does nothing more than just that. However, in the females of the line, the modified taint causes physical changes (as described above). They have the physical appearance and capabilities of 'vampires', and they age in a way that is different from normal humans, extending their lifespan and causing them to retain a young appearance throughout most of their lives. Of course, because this 'vampirism' is caused by genetic modification, they are not undead. They are just as much alive as any non-affected human. As such, these 'vampires' do not burn in sunlight, nor do they need to feed on blood. They are merely genetically enhanced humans.

The modified form of the taint will not cause the subject to lose control of themselves in any way, nor will it spread in any other way than through reproduction.

Note: The fact that the Canaigh are affected by this taint is not common knowledge. All anyone outside the family would be able to know of this are their physical attributes.

The Talinist Chroniclers

Of old, the members of the Maridon family, ancestors to the current Canaigh dynasty, have always had a fixation on history, legends and mythology, close to being obsessive with it. Being direct decendants of the ancient Maridon family, that lived in the legendary galaxy Andromeda, they believed that all history and legends were there to be uncovered and told to everyone who would listen, and that without history, there would be nothing.

These believes have slowly seeped into the Canaigh family since Odhran took over the title of Lady. It has become part of their lives and of their old religion, Talinism. Over the years, Talinism slowly changed to become not just a religion promoting balance and the protection of all life and its Talina, but also a religion to preserve and spread the legends, tales, and most importantly, facts of the past.

Dynasty

Current Active Dynasty Members

  • Lady Sedemay Canaigh
    • An idle, ordinary intellectual who loves solitude. She is an average duellist and an unsurpassed administrator.

    • Sedemay is an ordinary-looking woman. She is 5'2“ tall and slim. She has waist-long black hair and greenish blue eyes. Her complexion is very light.
    • Sedemay is a silent, but cheerful person. She is intelligent and likes to show off her education in her work, although she is not much of a bragging person. She likes to be alone, but also spends much of her free time with her family.
    • Sedemay was married to Mihail Kalashnikov through an arranged marriage. She did not like or dislike him at first, and slowly grew to love him as they lived together and raised their daughter together. A few years after Gertruda was born, Sedemay's next pregnancy failed, something that strengthened the bond between Sedemay and Mihail even more.
    • The meaning of the name Sedemay has been lost to history. She was named after her adoptive great-grandmother, the old Lady Sedemay Canaigh. Her name is often shortened to May by people from her family.
    • Sedemay is a Sage of the Faith of Talinism.

    • Leuruna is lazy and not very bright. The only thing that ever caught her attention for any reasonable period of time was the ancient art of duelling. As such, she went to an Academy and vowed to become the best duellist in the galaxy. She is very vain and pays a lot of attention to her looks. She likes to party and have fun, and is known for her skimpy yet classy way of dressing. She often loses her temper, sometimes even if there is no clear reason for it.
    • Leuruna organized a duelling tournament for her own hand. Many men competed for her hand in marriage. The representative of House Lorr was the victor, and they willed that Leuruna was promised to the then ten year old Godart Blint. After a few years, Lady Morwyn and Chairman Blint had a heated political argument, and Morwyn saw that their views were inconsolable. Morwyn proceeded to retract the promise, and Leuruna was available from that moment on. She never got married, but she has likely had many affairs with retainers throughout the years, her most prominent and long one with the duellist that won her tournament.
    • The name Leuruna comes from Leofrun, which is a combination of two words meaning 'dear secret lore'. This name is a reference to the Maridon ancestry of the current Canaigh, as the Maridon valued history and lore over anything else. Leuruna is often called (and calls herself) Luna.
    • Leuruna is enrolled in the duelling scene, where she is a good second to Inga Tzarnoff, the best duellist in the galaxy.

    • Gertruda is an honest and open, but fairly selfish woman. Although she has few, she can keep secrets very well. She is kind and cheerful. She knows what she wants, and she often acts accordingly, unwilling to give up on things so that others can have it.
    • Gertruda spent her childhood at the Silver Mansion, in the care of her father Mihail and her mother Sedemay. She spent much of her time with her father, who made sure she could take care of herself. The rest of her time was spent playing with Sexburg. At the reception for Empress Gertruda's funeral, she met Laurentius Goman, who she was betrothed to as soon as their family leaders noticed they got along fine. She took over many of her mother's duties throughout the years, and became Head of Public Relations for House Canaigh at age 35. At her father's death, she inherited his special weapon, the Kalashnikov Special, which she still carries out of respect for her late father. Gertruda became Empress of the Second Capricornian Empire after a short revolution against the Democratic Empire, and instated a new Constitution.

    • Sexburg is a mischievous woman. She is often up to no good and is prone to getting herself in trouble, dragging others along with her, although she usually just wants to have fun. She is very stubborn, but can be friendly if she wants to be.
    • Sexburg is a month older than Gertruda and the two grew up together at the Silver Mansion. Sexburg was taken care of by her father Alfric and her grandfather Gairdh. She was never really affected by her mother's disappearance, and thinks her younger sister Eira is a weird girl, although she loves her nonetheless. She adored her grandfather and she always wanted to become an Archaeologist/Adventurer when she would grow up. She never achieved this, though, and after working as a duellist in the Alpheratz duelling circles, as personal trainer for Leuruna, she joined the Canaigh military and is now Commander of the Asuka Elite Division.
    • The name Sexburg comes from ancient mythology. Sexburg was named after the legendary Pirate Queen Mistress Sexburg Stroh.
    • Sexburg is an Archaeologist of the Faith of Talinism.

    • Elgiva is a gorgeous young woman. She is 5'6“ tall and slim. She has long black hair and green eyes. Her skintone is light to medium. The resemblance to her mother is striking, but Elgiva is much more feminine in the way she moves and talks.
    • Elgiva is fairly lazy and not the brightest of girls. Fortunately for her, her beauty and gracefulness make up for that. She often acts like a spoiled princess and likes to order the servants around to do everything she doesn't feel like doing, and more. She cannot keep a secret and likes to spread rumours about everyone and everything. She loves to laze about in the mansion's enormous garden, reading books on archaeology and the occult. Her mind is focused only for those two subjects, and when she is out in the field, she turns from a lazy princess into an energetic and driven archaeologist, who doesn't shy away from adventure. She is not easily frightened, though she feels uncomfortable around her cousins, who easily surpass her in psionic and physical power.
    • Elgiva grew up at the Silver Mansion with her two sisters Seonag and Hilda, and her two cousins Meghan and Deri. She always felt uncomfortable around her cousins, and as a result, she never spent much time with them. She adored her great-grandfather and at his funeral, she took up his hat, proclaiming she would be the next Canaigh to follow in his footsteps and persue knowledge of archaeology and the occult.

Besides that, he is trained in various martial arts, as well as archery. He is arrogant and confident. At times, he is even insufferable, especially when he feels superior. In his relationship to Elgiva, though, he seems to disregard her lack of intelligence because of their shared interests, her beauty and her special abilities, even if they are less well-developed than her siblings' and cousins' powers.
    • Alair is an Archaeologist of the Faith of Talinism.
  • Hen Wyneb Canaigh

    • Eira is a silent, but intelligent woman. Losing her mother when she was young, she keeps to herself a lot. When she opens up, however, her character is cheerful and fair. She was very uncomfortable in public when younger, and still prefers to be alone or with the people she likes. When she dislikes a person, she can come across very cold, gazing at the person with her icy eyes. She loves mythology and adores adventure. She is curious of nature, but also secretive. She keeps many things to herself, including her ability to see and talk to ghosts and her inexplicable telepathic connection with the family's ancestor Awena Maridon. Because of these things, she will occasionally be seen talking in herself, and she is regarded as strange in the eyes of many. She is a powerful shadow psion and has an innate, near perfect control of her abilities, rivalled and surpassed only by her daughter Meghan.
    • Eira grew up with her older sister at the Silver Mansion, in the care of their father Alfric. Eira dislikes her grandfather Gairdh, although she admires his dedication. In many ways, Eira's connection to Awena served as a substitute for her mother after she disappeared. She learned many things through this connection, and she loves Awena as dearly as she loves her father. She does not particularly like her sister Sexburg, although she does care about her. She loves her three brothers (Leonidas, Tiras and Beelzebub) dearly. She hates her husband Shahid, and will gladly admit that her children are not his. Eira's heart lies with her lover, Niwa Toshihito. With Toshihito's and Cuthbert ser Noche's help, she opened a Void Gate on Mebsuta Alpha to bring Awena Maridon to Capricorn.

    • Deri is a handsome man. He has black hair with a few white strands and bright blue eyes. He is 6'1” tall and of muscular build. His complexion is very light.
    • Deri is an energetic, gentle and kind man. He is not very bright, and, even though he has the aptitude to be a decently powerful shadow psion, he is incompetent at training and using his power. He has no sense of discipline. In more recent years, he has started to experience his Niwa heritage through Shadow's use of his body.
    • Deri grew up at the Silver Mansion together with his sister Meghan. The two of them spent a lot of time with the children of Lady Milis Baideanach. He attended the Elite University in the city of Asuka, the capital of Alpheratz. After graduating with honours, he is currently giving classes on History to the masses of Asuka.
    • The name Deri means 'oak'. Deri was given this name because the oak is a symbol of wisdom in both the Canaigh and the Maridon traditions.
    • Deri is an Archivist of the Faith of Talinism.
  • Meghan Awena Canaigh
    • A driven, ordinary individual. She is a mediocre duellist and administrator.

    • Meghan is a pretty young woman. She is 4'9“ tall and slim. Her complexion is very light. She was born with black hair with a few white strands and bright blue eyes, but in her years as a teenager, her hair turned fully black and her eyes have come to have a hint of green in them. She has grown up to be a perfect image of Awena Maridon.
    • Meghan is an energetic, adventurous young woman, who shares her body with Awena Maridon. She likes to talk, but is very insecure around strangers. She has a passion for exploring things and her curiosity often gets the better of her. She has a graceful way of walking and talking. She is very intelligent, but often feigns average intellect. She likes to play mindgames with others and has a strong will of her own, but never second guesses Awena's opinions and counsels. She is a hopeless romantic and she adores fairytales and mythology. As a child, she liked to dress up and act like a princess from a fairytale. Like Awena, she is gentle and sweet towards her loved ones, but cold towards her enemies. Meghan possesses an extremely powerful, innate shadow psionic ability, the most powerful in the Canaigh family, and has perfect control of it.
    • Awena is a graceful and contemplative woman. She doesn't talk much, unless she feels comfortable. She is generally cheerful, but very shy and clumsy in the company of strangers. Because of her curiosity, she is interested in many things and loves to learn about them. She is also very creative, she loves to draw and compose poems. She loves to sing as well. She is a hopeless romantic and, growing up, often liked to dress and act like she was a princess from a fairytale. Through her experiences with the Taint, life and death, Awena changed from the always cheerful, naive girl she used to be, into a wiser, stronger, more temperate and calculated woman with a very strong will. She is kind and warm to those she loves, but is extremely cold towards her enemies. Awena is not a psion of her own ability.
    • Meghan grew up at the Silver Mansion with her brother Deri. When she was just a baby, her mother Eira opened the Void Gate to bring their ancestor Awena Maridon to Capricorn. Awena's aged body did not survive the journey. Her soul, however, was strong enough to withstand the Void and complete the journey. Arriving on the other side of the Gate, Awena's powerful soul transferred into Meghan's body. Over time, Awena educated Meghan's soul and shaped her into a natural extension of herself. The two souls differ from one another, but share the body peacefully, acting as one, and are slowly merging together. About a year after her marriage, Meghan found she was pregnant with her first child, a pregnancy that sadly resulted in a miscarriage. This brought back severe memories for Awena. Meghan was emotionally distraught, but Awena helped her through the hard times, this time without escalating things.
    • The name Meghan means 'strong and able'. Meghan was given this name because her mother wishes for her to be a strong and able person, who, in absence of an heir for Gertruda, may continue the Canaigh line in the future.
    • The name Awena means 'poetry'. Awena was given this name when she was born for the first time in galaxy Fornux, because reading poetry to her would calm her down and make her stop crying when she was a baby.

    • Meghan is an Archaeologist of the Faith of Talinism.
    • Awena is a Tainted of the Faith of Fu Leng, a Savant of the Chroniclers of the Aeons and a Scholar of the Chroniclers of the Void.

    • Shahid is often very busy and is often not home, always travelling to lecture people on the teachings of Talinism.

He likes spending his monthly allowance on booze and whores, and does not care for Eira, nor for the kids that aren't his.
    • Shahid is a Sage of the Faith of Talinism.

    • Odhran is the mother of Morwyn. She is the daughter of Awena Maridon. She was sent to galaxy Capricorn to find a place for the Maridon to settle, finding this place amongst the Canaigh. She stepped down rather than dying, and being over 150 years old, she keeps away from public affairs.

After he was married to his first wife, Clare Salvandy, she encouraged him to be himself. Gradually, he started to live as a female when he was with Clare, going by the name 'Ellyn'. However, the days he spent at the Silver Mansion were still spent as a male, out of fear of his father's wrath. Together with Clare, Alfric had two daughters, named Sexburg and Eira, and three sons, named Leonidas, Tiras and Beelzebub. When Clare left the galaxy without any notice, Alfric was left behind with their five children. He was then approached for marriage by his cousin, Lady Milis Baideanach. He accepted the proposal and left the Silver Mansion to live with her permanently, although his five children remained at the Silver Mansion. Together with Milis, Alfric had three children: two boys named Oisin and Wilfred, and a girl named Nadja. At the Baideanach residence, Alfric could be himself as Milis did not care about his gender difficulties as long as he shared his bed with her, and she protected him fiercely, wanting to see him happy over anything else. Of the Canaigh family, the only others that knew about this, besides his father, were Leuruna and Alfric's children.
