House Deveaux: A house of Divinity

Long ago, the name Deveaux was known far and wide as a strong, noble and powerful name in the hearts and minds of men. A house born of hard work, blood, sweat and tears by humble labourers and selfless nobility. It once ruled the lands of the south east between the areas now know as La Fouldre and Og’Domn.

When the Fall happened, there was a time where House Deveaux still managed to hold out and survive the first two centuries. Suffering and enduring the Long Winter and attacks from various outside forces that sought to take advantage of the chaos created from the Fall. Soon enough, the kingdom fell after many famines, invasions and cold snaps.

Many centuries later, during the embroiling conflicts of current time a descendant of the Deveaux bloodline, Duchess Marchesa Deveaux. Marchesa is a young woman of twenty four years, but the only known descendant of the bloodline left alive to this day. This cling to the old world has enthralled many to praise and follow her as the so called “Second coming” of Saint Agobard, a long dead devout follower of the Theist faith.

Due to this, Marchesa has developed a near zealot like fanaticism towards the Theist faith, converting many people to what she sees as “the One True Faith”. This has not gone unnoticed either, those higher up in the Theists took notice of the fledgling noble and approached her, offering to help her retake her ancestral home as by her right. In return for their assistance, Duchess Marchesa has pledged her kingdom and it’s resources to the cause of the faith. Sending able men and women to fight under the Theist banner whenever they are needed.

Now, with her numbers swollen and fervour ignited, she marches towards her soon to be kingdom, to take what is hers. But it will not be easy. The Dwegholm of Og’Domn seek the lands to be theirs due to the rich abundance of rare metals in it’s soil that make it ideal for making armour. There are also those of the Orders, the survivors of the Last Legion who defended mankind from the darkness. Seeking to make sure the church do not claim a foothold in the region through their puppet leader.
