House Background

The House na Nialaigh is actually a large, sprawling extended clan of rising prominence on the galactic stage. Their scattered history extends back to the fall of Eden, which they fled to the Green Crescent with the rest of the Broman, settling primarily on Mimosa. The current ruling family of the Clann na Nialaigh is the Ó Néill sept.

The Ó Néills have a heritage stretching back to the days of Roma and Eden itself, and their days as the ruling sept of the clan date back nearly six thousand years. Their women tend to be short and curvaceous, the men of average height and solid build, and all of them bear characteristically flaming hair and emerald eyes.

In the declining years of the Malvolio reign and the subsequent interregnum, the clan has grown to a tremendous dominance under the rule of the Chieftess Nobyn. The empire in ashes and bureaucracy stagnant, the clan largely governs itself with her guidance.

Dynasty

Nobyn Ó Néill Mór, Chieftess na Nialaigh
A driven, enchanting genius. She is a mediocre duellist and administrator.
Born to Isolde Ó Néill and Brian mac Íomhair in the month of FIXME, CE 66 (8 Malvolio).
Widow of Edward de Valenois and mother of Oliver and Frank de Valenois, all deceased.
Sister to Eilwen and Briana Ó Néill, with a flagrantly incestuous relationship with the latter.
5′3″, 140 lbs.; she has fine and silky classic-length flaming red hair marred with silver, coming to a noble's point; gold-flecked emerald green almond eyes; a heart-shaped face, with cleft chin, broad and full lips, a pert nose, high cheekbones, and fine brows; and a filled hourglass figure, with motherly hips, average waist, full bosom and wide shoulders.
Inhumanly graceful, energetic, and poised, Nobyn is the bright and shining scion of the Ó Néill sept and ruler of the Clann na Nialaigh. She ascended to the chieftainship at the start of CE 80 (22 Malvolio) after her mother's foul assassination at a ball a few days prior. She has an uncanny and formidable prowess with wielding Light and Void in either hand, and often seems to be in many places at once.
Eilwen Ó Néill Mór na Nialaigh
A dilligent, charismatic intellectual. She is a mediocre duelist and a superb administrator.
Born to Isolde Ó Néill and Brian mac Íomhair in the month of Faith, CE 68 (10 Malvolio).
Widow to Aldwin Malvolio and mother of Elmer Malvolio, all deceased.
Sister to Nobyn and Briana Ó Néill.
5′4″, 115 lbs.; she has fine and silky shoulder-length flaming red hair, coming to a noble's point; greyish-green almond eyes; a heart-shaped face with cleft chin, pert nose, and high cheekbones; and a taut figure with slender waist, narrow hips, and perky bosom.
Graceful and energetic, though not as unsurpassingly as her elder sister, Eilwen is current heir to the chieftanship and handles much of the day-to-day administration of the clan.
Briana Ó Néill Mór na Nialaigh
An idle, ordinary individual. She is a superb duellist and an average administrator.
Born to Isolde Ó Néill and Brian mac Íomhair in the month of FIXME, CE 71 (13 Malvolio).
Widow of to Norman Warnet and mother to Bedwyr Warnet, deceased.
Mother of Mewian Ó Néill and sister to Nobyn and Eilwen Ó Néill — in a flagrantly incestuous relationship with the eldest sister.
5′4½″, 150 lbs.; she has fine and silky ear-length dark red hair, coming to a noble's point; hunter-green almond eyes; a diamond-shaped face with cleft chin, pert nose, and high cheekbones; and a lean and muscled but not-unattractive figure.
Athletic, but with less drive than her elder sisters, Briana has thrown herself into the prize-fighting ring with a will, defeating all comers. She has recently been thinking of retiring, however, because of all three sisters of her generation she is the only one to have produced an heir.
Mewian Ó Néill Mór na Nialaigh
An idle, ordinary intellectual. She is an average duellist and an unsurpassed administrator.
Born to Briana Ó Néill and Norman Warnet in the month of Culminations, CE 81 (23 Malvolio).
Morwyn Ó Néill Mór na Nialaigh
A diligent, enchanting halfwit. She is a mediocre duellist and an average administrator.
Born to a younger aunt of Nobyn in the month of FIXME, CE 89 (31 Malvolio).
5′21/2″, 140 lbs.; she has the classic Ó Néill hair and noble's point; stormy-grey eyes; a heart-shaped face with cleft chin, full lips, pert nose, high cheekbones, and fine brows; and an indecently tempting hourglass figure of perfect proportions.
As inhumanly graceful and beautiful as the Chieftess of her house, Morwyn alas lacks her genius, but gets by well on charm and diligence — assisted by her wife and protector Gethsemane.
Gethsemane na Nialaigh
A dynamic, enchanting intellectual. She is an average duellist and administrator.
Born to lowborn parents in the month of FIXME, CE 84 (26 Malvolio).
5'6“, 130 lbs.; she has strawberry hair and dancing green eyes, a round face with a devilish smile and snub nose, and a figure every inch as attractive as her wife Morwyn's. Assigned as her protector, Gethsemane gradually fell in love with her ward and married her on her very day of majority.
Jowan Ó Néill na Nialaigh
An idle, ordinary dullard. He is a mediocre duellist and an average administrator.
Born early in CE 61. An elder cousin to Nobyn, he is enjoying a retirement flitting amongst Silverwell's growing entertainment empire.
