House Background

Though the bloodline of House Lantern reaches far into Alkaidi antiquity - or so they claim, anyway - only recently have they ascended to the position of noble house.

The Lanterns have long operated a family company of intraplanetary trading on Alkaid. However, only Noble Houses have the legal right to commence interplanetary trade, and it is quite difficult normally for any commoner family to gain a title.

All of that changed with the fall of House Malvolio and the interregnum. Without an Emperor, whatever authority the position held falls to the newly reforming Senate, and it was quite easy to convince a few anonymous Senators, in exchange for a few donations, to grant the Lanterns a noble title. The title grant was approved without even reaching the Senate floor, and House Lantern was officially recognized as a Noble House on the 4th Resolve, 98 CE (the fourth year of the interregnum). Led by the Duchess Chiara, they quickly rose to become the largest mercantile power in the galaxy over the course of the next year, through shrewd expansion and lack of competition.

House Lantern's past is a story of a rapid rise to galactic prominence. House Lantern's future looks very bright indeed.

Note: The Ducal title is a reference to the Doges of Venice. “Lantern” is nothing more or less than a reference to one of my online aliases.
