House Cesare




~~~~~~~ Introduction: ~~~~~~~
The scorching afternoon sun made the district smell of fish. It was one of the problems with port cities, Benito presumed. He hated the city. He'd much rather be back at his estate, together with his family, enjoying the fruits of their years of hard labour. His wife would make the most delicious meals. They reminded him of his younger days, when their mother used to make those meals. It was a bittersweet memory, considering where the family currently was. In the city of stinking canals.
He had to be here though. Politics, the game of Wolfstadt, demanded his presence in the city.

It would be here that the three noble families would convene, to decide the faith of those in the realm. It was a system of beauty. The noble families all got a vote on matters of importance, and today a vote was planned on a matter of extreme importance.

As he paced around the room Benito could not help but be unnerved by the presence of Alphonse de Rieu. The elven viscount was one of the nobles, and his vote could change the tide of the city as much as any. He would probably sell the city to Lavoyard if it were up to him, the filthy elf.
Otto von Strauss, the third viscount was a much more welcoming presence. House Von Strauss was a human noble house, like house Cesare. They however didn't share Benito's distaste of elves and dwarves. He was not stupid enough to vote for the De Rieus in the first round though, Benito hoped.

The first round had ended as expected. All families had voted for themselves.
This meant a revote, however and a dangerous one at that.
If any of the houses got two votes, they would hold the title of Archduke. House Cesare couldn't be serving an elf though. Never.
Benito nodded to Otto von Straus, smiling discreetly.
He nodded back, he knew he had won.
At least it wasn't an elf.

~~~~~~~ OOC Information: ~~~~~~~

House Cesare is one of the currently three noble houses of Wolfstadt. House Cesare is a family whose values are based around purity. They have a distinct distaste for all but humans, elves and dwarves, and even amongst those they think humans are superior and the only ones fit to hold any sort of high authority.
This sense of purity runs so deep that they consider their blood to be the purest, and by marrying amongst themselves they seek to keep this as such.
They are a very conservative house in this sense, and as such they are less then pleased by the presence of the De Rieu family as one of the other noble houses of Wolfstadt. Since their members are elven, and as such, the Cesares consider them unworthy of ruling over other humans.


House Cesare is a house whose ambitions are great, but familial ambitions are more important then individual ones, in their eyes. As such their motto, Family Comes First, is a fitting one.

They originated as merchants and have as such established their control over the trade of a peculiar substance known as coffee. A drink made from the extracts of roasted coffee beans. As they asserted their dominance over the coffee trade once, they hope to assert their dominance over Wolfstadt politics one day. They will do anything for that. Foreign alliances, bribes, perhaps even assassinations.

Added some of the houses I got the feeling from that are semi-active in political-ish rp to the diplomatic relations bit. Hoping to get some rp going soon to get those relations sorted.
