House Policy and Values
Edicts of Arthfael
Upon the founding of the House of Olivriar, the first Patriarch, Arthfael, enacted a set of policies and family laws which enforce the powers of the Patriarch, and the interactions with other noble houses, motions which were intended to maintain the peasant roots' strong hold in generations to come.
The Authority of the Patriarch
The first edict enforces the authority of the Patriarch, the head of the family; it ensures and details that the Patriarch is limited almost absolutely to ceremonial power. The edict is as follows:
- He may not force another of his family into an engagement, relinquishment of property or arranged marriage without the approval of the member in question.
- If the incumbent head of family steps down or passes, and the eldest child is a female, instead of a male, she may be able to take the helm of the family as its Matriarch without constraint.
- If the incumbent head of family steps down or passes, and the eldest child is not legitimate through marriage, and their name is Olivriar, they may be able to take the helm of the family as its Patriarch or Matriarch without constraint. Furthermore, an illegitimate child may not be lowered socially, politically or financially beneath those of "legitimate" bloodline for their illegitimate birth.
- The head of family may not enforce his own beliefs or views in a way to obstruct or change his family. Although, he may have just reason to obstruct a member whose behavior is destructive upon the entire family's reputation or growth.
- The head of the family has absolute control of the family company, the Olivriar Wineries and Farms as its Chief Overseer, unless he states otherwise.
- Only the head of the family has the ability to name a family member a ceremonial Protector, Elder or Legend of the family - and he must have great cause for such a decision.
- Finally, the authority of the edict enforces that the Patriarch may not change or enact new edicts or laws thereof, for any reason, unless with the support of five or more members of the House of Olivriar that are above the age of sixteen.
Policy on Noble House Interactions
In the formation of the Noble House of Olivriar, the Patriarch, Arthfael, decreed that the House of Olivriar shall not actively pursue conflict with another noble house. A failure to comply with the policies below shall result in immediate and indefinite disowning of the member of the House. The House of Olivriar shall not:
- Involve themselves identified as the House of Olivriar within a conflict involving two or more noble houses.
- Instigate a conflict with one or more noble houses identified as the House of Olivriar.
- If a member of the Olivriar wishes to engage in conflict against another noble house in any shape or form, he or she must renounce their position and hold within the family for the duration of the conflict in question.
The Members of the Family
Sarah Olivriar is the thirty-nine year-old daughter of Arthfael - she currently has ran from home, and is living off somewhere far away.
Andrei Valyno-Olivriar is the bastard-child of Arthfael and his ex-girlfriend, Sophia. Raised by his grandmother upon the Lunar Isle, the seventeen year old was not exposed to the acts of his father, nor his mother, save the fact that he might've been abandoned. ...
Arthfael 'Junior' Olivriar (II)
Arthfael Olivriar Jr is the twenty year old son son of Arthfael Olivriar and Alexis Renderra, and is quite an adept magician for such a young child - being the offspring of two quite talented, and powerful mages. In his youth, Arth was unruly and constant pushing the boundaries of the household's rules. Although, with time, Arth has since become much more mellow - and lives in obscurity within the family's seaside manor on the southern Asgarnian coast.
Anthony and Clara Olivriar
Anthony and Clara Olivriar are the twins of Arthfael Olivriar and Alexis Renderra, a boy and a girl. They are in their late twenties. Clara lives in the forests near Varrock, as last known, while her twin, Anthony, lives in a manor near Ardougne with his second wife, Madison, and two of his children. Clara, as a child, was grown to learn botany and supporting skills in place of the combat skills her siblings were taught; her mother firmly kept her training among the non-combat attributes. Anthony, as a child, was grown to learn archery and hunting, leading to his excellent skill set in the arts. Despite being twins, they are quite opposite; with Anthony being a sociable, outgoing personality - his sister is reserved and calm.
Scarlett Olivriar is a middle child of the Arthfael-Lexi children, who noticeably acquired a rebellious attitude for the world in the dawn of her teenage years. Lives in Varrock, although, exact location is unknown.
Sir Velos Olivriar is currently an established Temple Knight. He is also notably a cousin of Arthfael, son of farmers, Marcellius and Katalina Olivriar. As a close friend and ally of Arthfael's, Velos is currently known for bringing the family company to the spotlight, and the only known survivor of an illness that killed his siblings.
Merrick Maxwell Olivriar is the seventeen year old son of Anthony Olivriar, and his eldest. At five years of age, in continuation of the family tradition, Merrick had began training with swordsmanship and other melee skills. In physical appearance, he has slightly olive skin, with electric blue eyes and dark brown hair. Like his uncle, in his youth, Merrick was obnoxious and unruly with little sense of discipline or order. Such behavior got him into actions such as accidentally firing cannons of the Castle as Asgarnia's Crown Prince, and messing with his father's affairs and documents. Though, he has mellowed out in his teens, and has began developing complex philosophical beliefs and values in life.
Nathan and Olivia Olivriar
Nathan and Olivia Olivriar are the sixteen-year-old twins of Anthony Olivriar, and his youngest. At five years of age, in continuation of the family tradition, Nathan had began training in magical arts by a family guardian, Etalon. Olivia had began training in archery and hunting by her father, and grandmother. Nathan is a mellow, reserved introvert while his sister tends to be obnoxious and extroverted in behavior.
Ceremonial House Titles
Patriarch/Matriarch of the House
The Patriarch/Matriarch of House Olivriar is a title given to the ceremonial leader of the Olivriar - it is simply a ceremonial title, as the family is built off a philosophy of free will.
