Dominion of Empyrea
House Altar was the first and greatest noble House. Anthem Altar I later ascended to godhood, cementing their status as exemplars of honor. Later nobles generally attempted to live up to his considerable legacy. Some were successful, others were seen as failures of the House.
The head of House Altar facilitates the Noble Court, and commands much influence. When House Altar rules on a decision, their will is rarely gone against. The House usually allows other noble Houses to take care of less important work, such as the subjugation of barbaric raiders from the north and the protection of the Dominion’s borders.
The current head of House Altar is Reynard Altar II, and his heir is the promising Tynian Altar II.
