House Background

Ancient house that fell out with nobility after being a bit over zealous. Since revived, also re-founder of szymonism.

House Zealot initially joined the Crimson Petals alliance, dedicated to peace in Capricorn, but as Brother Nethaniah was elected as Emperor, they stood alone.

Eventually they had a virtual monopoly over the entire galaxy in regards to construction operations, but later felt that this was damaging the architectural diversity in Capricorn and so ceased operations. During their time in the construction business House Zealot revived their faith, Szymonism and erected many structures in the name of their faith. Recently they received a revelation from Szymon himself that following him with such zeal in unhealthy, and instead his followers should decipher his words and bring them into physical reality. Upon hearing these words Nethaniah Zealot immediately Prioritised Technological research over normal religious activities, you could now say that research is a primary tenet of Szymonism. =====Military Organisation===== House Zealot used to adhere to a strict separation of civilian and military infrastructure, however since the Noah uprising House Zealot now fortifies key civilian worlds heavily. Most military infrastructure is still based on their home world of Aspidiske along with the core of their civilian research and religious activities, while other civilian operations are spread throughout the galaxy. House Zealots military uses standard equipment across the board. MKIV HEMA Rifles, Hybrid coil and multi-stator rail gun designed to fire heavier projectiles than standard rail or coil guns. MKIII HEVAP armour, A armoured hazardous environment power suit with built in IFF system and TLP reactors (titanium lattice positron). EMGFC Grenades, Electromagnetic-Gravitational flux compression grenades. They use a electromagnetic-gravitational flux collapse to cause damage through gravity shear and fry electronics through the resulting EMP. FRD fields, Flux reactive deflection fields that feed back into a analogue circuit to calculate optimal deflection patterns against light arms and field effects in real time. FRD modules are normally attached to the pauldron area of a soldiers armour, two just below the collar bones and two placed on the upper shoulder blades. FRD modules may be removed and linked to other FRD modules to create area coverage and provide protection from heavier arms. Elite soldiers are given neural control of attached FRD modules allowing them to perform a variety of advanced combat manoeuvres. If effect Elite soldiers have a form of technological Telekinesis, allowing them to move themselves by placing force against nearby objects or moving nearby objects or enemies according to their desires. Dynastic armour is slightly different from standard equipment. They are shrouded in a shock absorbing cloak and mantle. Additional FRD generators are located on the forearms and shoulders, allowing superior field generation and control. =====Arms Equality Program===== House Zealot runs the Arms Equality Program in Capricorn. The Arms Equality Program is a unofficial program designed to bring technological equality to military in Capricorn via cheap long term mercenaries. This was brought about mainly due to several previous wars where the technological advantage excluded many houses from participating fully in combat, and essentially leaving them defenceless. Since the Noah uprising legions may only be purchased via private agreement, they are no longer publicly available. =====Participation in wars===== Participated in the noah uprising.**

House Noah}} viciously attacked several Houses using hundreds of company level units, destroying any civilian infrastructure that was unprotected. Fortunately due to the organisation of House Zealot, while much of their civilian infrastructure was destroyed their operations were virtually unaffected. House Noah managed to hire 16 AEP legions, and it could have been worse had it not been for vigilance on the part of House Zealot withdrawing remaining AEP legions from service before they could be hired. In response House Zealot attacked House Noahs homeworld, their first assault destroying 5 AEP legions and severely crippling 5 others. Over the course of a few days the defence that the legions offered House Noah was rapidly destroyed by Zealot, destroying 14 of the AEP legions and leaving Noah's armies bare for slaughter. The end result was every unit being slaughtered and all facilities being destroyed by a coalition of houses across the galaxy. Participated in the [[capricorn:wars:war of a thousand suns. Currently unnamed war against Daimyo.
