“The bond between the High House and House Windermere was said to be stronger than even the bond between Gemini.”
Known as the oldest and strongest relationship in the Kingdom of Vahalia, the relationship between House Windermere and the High House was forged before the very creation of the Original World.
The story of House Windermere and the High House started with their parent gods, the goddess Avani and the goddess Calypso, who are half-sisters.
Their mother is Elvania, the Goddess of War Tactics and Wisdom, who was one of the eight gods to be created from light, rather than through birth. Calypso’s father is Raggor, the God of Rebels, and Avani’s father is Eurishem, the God of Eunichs.
After the Original World was created, Calypso and Avani were given seats on the Lunar Council, where they ruled under the King of the Gods, Gandos. There, Avani was given the nickname, The Little Shadow, for the goddess always agreed with and followed her older sister.
And when Calypso chose to lead a rebellion against Gandos and the other gods, Avani followed her sister into battle, where she helped Calypso gain victory and win the War of the Gods.
When the gods returned to the Realm of Luna, thus separating themselves from the original beings, Calypso became the mother god of the High House, also known as House Morgen, and Avani became the mother god of House Windermere, uniting the two Grand Houses through divine blood.
For the next seven thousand years, the strong bond of Calypso and Avani is passed down to the Lords of House Windermere and the High House, which is shown through House Windermere’s undying loyalty to the High House, who they serve.
Unlike other Grand Houses, House Windermere rules over no realm, but reside in the capital city of Diamond Rough, which is the stronghold of the High House. There, the members of House Windermere keep a close relationship with the members of the High House. They are their playmates in childhood. They are their war brothers in battle. They are their advisors in the council room. They are their friends and confidants in private.
The bond between the High House and House Windermere is the oldest and strongest relationship in the Kingdom of Vahalia.
Let the gods bless them and keep them bonded.
