Vassal of Malvici
Words: "To act without thought is slavery."
Sigil: A prowling cat
Nickname: Saik cats, Saik lions.
Blessed with the title of nobility, if not ostentatious wealth or large land holdings. The truth is, they're rather poor, even if the stretch of property they maintain is quaint, even idyllic. Considering that they are a Lycene House, it may come as a surprise to some that the Saiks are not, in point of fact, a fashion-crazed, plot-hungry, conspirator-loving family amidst a sea of such (according to all rumor) that exists within Lyceum. Indeed, by and large, the Saiks are content with what they have. Which is to say, food, serfs, and relative wealth. Why risk losing a good thing?
Description: Though by no means large, the Saikland Greens is named for the lush meadows and vineyards surrounding the village of the same name that comprises the barony. With its relative lack of strategic importance away from major thoroughfares between Southport and Tor, the Greens have been spared much of the long standing intrigues and bloodshed throughout the rest of the Lyceum.
Landmarks: In 1007 AR, House Saik funded the Grand Mirrored Ballroom of the Thirteenth, as part of the Pilgrimage Path to honor the Dark Reflection. While the small barony is largely regarded as bucolic, the Grand Mirrored Ballroom is a principle draw to visit the barony for travelers seeking a revel in honor of the Thirteenth.
Trends: Created just in time before the 1007 Eclipse of Mirrors, the Grand Mirrored Ballroom promises to see one of the largest lycene Mirror Masquerades in recent memories, as thousands of revelers visit the small barony in honor of the Thirteenth. This would, of course, put the barony in the middle of thousands of Lycene nobles meeting for their intrigues, and has given the pastoral barony a far more cosmopolitan air than it once had.
