House Background

Ancient History

House Kendar believe themselves to be an ancient family, tracing its roots back to old earth to a region known as Germania. Little is known from this time, but it is believed they were part of a mass exodus from Earth, heading for the stars. Moving from system to system like nomads, House Kendar arrived at Capricorn a little over five-hundred years ago. The first hundred years went by quietly, the family dabbling in trade and commerce on Zaurak Australis their new adopted home planet.

Recent History

House Kendar awakens

House Kendar had been an anonymous local power for hundreds of years, until Volker Kendar was born. The enigmatic new Overlord set about sweeping changes. He entered the transportation sphere, and quickly gained local dominance. Just as they were about to step up to greatness, the dreaded galactic plague struck several worlds they operated in. Quickly most local powers demanded a full stop to all transportation activities, and after some time, Volker Kendar had to grudgingly accept this. Fearing future retaliation, Volker sought alliance with a growing Alliance in the quadrant known as the Commonwealth. During this time House Kendar propsered greatly, and was for some time once of the most powerful houses in the galaxy, only rivaled by House Grey and House Miyamoto.

Conflict and Tragedy

While House Kendar was at its peak of power, Houses Eldak and Stattlich launched a surprise attack on Commonwealth worlds, under orders from the Empress. Commonwealth forces struck back fiercely, to such a degree that the Empress offered a seize fire only weeks later. For House Kendar, this victory would be followed by tragedy. Shortly after the dreaded galactic plague struck again, this time spreading over dozens of worlds. The transportation empire of House Kendar came to a halt, and several family members were struck by the plague. Volker Kendar himself became sick, and died shortly after. Though Olaf Kendar was next in line, his plague stricken uncle, Mario Kendar seized the power and left the Commonwealth. In an all out assault, he launched a massive attack directed at the Imperial Throneworld, and several prized planets of the Fenris League. His reasons for attacking the Fenris League remains questionable, but it is said that he personally blamed them for spreading the plague, and conspiring with the Empress against the Commonwealth.

The Imperial Palace on Unukalhai was razed to the ground, an the planet couped. Mario Kendar would die on that planet, fenria league forces assaulting his position in droves. Later it was revealed that this was what he had planned all along, and through his Kendar Manifest he explained his actions.

Return to the Commonwealth and war

After several confusing months, Olaf Kendar became undisputed leader of House Kendar, despite his young age of twenty three. He abandoned the transportation sphere, focused on the their growing construction empire instead. House Kendar was allowed entry into the Commonwealth once more. During this time they would see Rolf Avellar become the new Emperor after a bloody conflict with the Fenris League, and shortly after see House Takemiya become the new elected Empress.

House Kendars time in the Commonwealth ended when war with House Bridge broke out. House Kendar and Avellar fought bravely, but the experience was frustrating. Few of the other Commonwealth members had much of a military to speak of and it soon became apparent for House Kendar that they no longer had anything to gain by remaining in the Alliance.

New Allies and an Empire

House Kendar remained isolated for some time, before they struck a deal with an old enemy, House Hikari. They would join NightRise, a move that surprised and shocked many. They did not know of the special bond that can form between enemies that respect each other, and over time, this bond had turned into one of friendship. House Kendar aided House Hikari in his bid for the Empire. Along with House Avellar, the trio controlled over half the galaxy, and the mantle of the Empire was passed to House Hikari.

The galaxy was stunned when Hidetoki Hikari was assassinated just before he could be voted onto the throne. His son, Chikanaga Hikari, won the position of Emperor, and then passed the mantle to House Kendar after only a brief two years of rule. What will become of Emperor Olaf Kendar? Only time will tell..

Dynasty

  • Emperor Olaf Kendar, Leader of House Kendar
    • 39 years old. An idle, ordinary individual. He is a mediocre duellist and an unsurpassed administrator.
    • Olaf Kendar was never a gifted man, and it was willpower and determination that made him the administrator he is today. He is a good man, and has inherited many good traits from his late father Volker Kendar, including his belief in a just and thriving galactic community. This belief often conflicts with his sense of honour and duty, as he values agreements and alliances highly.
  • Beatrix Peregrine Kendar, Wife of the Emperor
    • 37 years old. A driven, enchanting individual. She is a mediocre duellist and an able administrator.
    • The beautiful wife of Olaf Kendar, she has been his conscience and support for almost two decades. Together they have two children, Gisela and Wilhelm Kendar.
  • Heinrich Kendar - Brother of the Emperor.
    • 34 years old. A diligent, irritating genius. He is an awesome duellist and a mediocre administrator
    • Heinrich Kendar is as infamous for his short temper as he is famous for his fighting skills. He broke completely with established protocol in the prize fighting arena, and made a habit of challenging -and beheading most of his opponents, regardless of skill and allegiance. In the recent years his demeanor has softened a bit, his wife Christina Kendar and their three children taking up most of his time.
