Vassal of The Crown
Words: "Cunning is no sin, a foolish ideal is no virtue."
Sigil: A swatch of silk wrapped around an iron gauntlet.
Colors: Steel and Blue
From the top of Verona Hill where the legendary Great Palace of Pravus sits, to the massive Titan of Setarco dancing in the Drowned Bay, to the mighty First Legion and the ill-reputed Black Fleet, or the famed courtiers of the House of Silken Sighs and deliciously addictive Silken Sin wine, the Sins of Setarco are many things to different members of the Peerage. Their long history is one of fiery passion, gruesome violence and enduring style, and whether is love, hate or something in between, all have an opinion on the ancient Pravus.
The ruling family of Setara, the Pravus are pragmatic, ambitious, predatory, elegant and scandal-prone. From their home in the glimmering shores of the Summer Seas, the Pravosi believe it is better to be feared than loved, having earned the fame of a House that will stop at nothing to achieve their own ends. Surrounded by a dark reputation and a penchant for skirting the social mores of society, the Sins exist at the edges of the Compact, both literally and figuratively, stalking where lights of the Faith are dimmer and luring others into their orbit with venomous charisma and wild natures.
Predating the Compact itself, the family claims not to rule Setara, but to embody it, something that becomes difficult to dispute, seeing how over the years many have tried and failed to dispute with the Pravosi domain over their ancestral home. From Setarco City, few scandals seem to significantly harm them, and counting Procella Pravus herself as one of their members, the Sins have firmly entrenched themselves in the Compact, their legacy synonimous to that of the Lyceum's and Arvum itself.
As of 1012 AR, House Pravus has been elevated to great house and granted dominion over the Saffron Chain.

Description: The Silken City, as Setarco is called, is the port city as well known for its decadent opulence as it is for its wealth. Said to be the place where courtesans first developed their art, the gorgeous city is far more libertine than the rest of the Realm with the ruling House Pravus renowned for lavish parties and a gleeful amorality that delights in shocking prudish visitors from the north.
Landmarks: The massive Titan of Setarco, a gargantuan statue of Procella Pravus stands in the Drowned Bay, to greet visitors sailing to Setarco's port.
The Great Palace of Setarco, a massive castle that sits on top of Verona Hill, its thirteen spires rising high in the skyline and giving it the unofficial name of Crown of Setara.
The School of Steel and Silk, Setarco's War College.
The Setarco Lodge of Petrichor has been built, providing agricultural development and survival training.
Trends: Founding member of the Empyrean Trade Route, and there has been an extremely sharp spike in demand for Setarco's silk from around the Compact as of late. An Abandoned clan named House Tortorici has bent the knee.
Part of the Kismet Carnivals.
A recently conquered pirate city, Luciva, has become an increasingly major secondary trading hub to the Silken City. It has been expanded greatly due to Drusila's efforts.
After the Battle of Pieros, tens of thousands of freed slaves have settled at Setarco and throughout the Isle of Setara.
