Vassal of Rubino-Zaffria
Words: "We will not be quenched."
Sigil: A scarlet phoenix rampant upon a black field.
IIgniseri rules from Castle Granato amidst the olive groves and vineyards of Granato. The Marquessa Emeritus, Emisilia Igniseri, is the mother of the ruling Marquessa, Quenia Igniseri, and she serves as castellan and agent of her daughter upon the lands. Quenia was instilled as Marquessa of House Igniseri upon the deaths of her brothers, Vincere Ignseri and Pietro Igniseri, during the Battle of Pridehall. House Igniseri was once held in higher esteem among the houses of the marquessa's rank across the Lyceum, but Emisilia's rule was troubled, unsubtle, and marked with death. Emisilia's reputation was not what it could have been, and she lost several husbands to death, including one whose death seemed readily laid at her door. Loyal vassal of House Rubino-Zaffria, the current scion of Igniseri was fostered with the Zaffria heirs and seems likely to continue that close tie.

Description: Granato is a satellite city-state of Gemecitta, a harbor port on the verge of the inlet sea, sitting at the mouth of the river that empties into the Lycene Sea and controlling access upriver to Gemecitta. Its primary wealth comes from shipping and trade, where the road from Gemecitta and its stone quarries reaches the sea. Vineyards and stands of olive groves surround the central city of Granato, where the olive presses and herb growers combine their trades to make finest olive oil to sell and include in the vassal tithes. To the north, on a cliffside rise overlooking the industry of the city and the busy docks that harness the bay, Castle Granato is the ancestral home of the Count of the March of House Igniseri.
