Houses

House Angelus

House Angelus is the largest of the six greater houses. Individually Pit Angels, as they are often known, are rather weak, and prefer to rally behind stronger beasts. They can however easily overwhelm more powerful creatures with large numbers if necessary.

They are not to be confused with true Angels, greatest terror of all creatures of the Pit.

House Vespatian

While Royalty is not technically passed hereditarily in the Pit (it is either gifted by the current king to a chosen heir, or taken by killing and eating the current king), the Royal House Vespatius has held the position through sheer brute strength over the last several thousand years. With the dusk of King Hadrian Vespatian's reign on the horizon, many have accepted that his first son, Marcus Brutus Vespatian, will be passed the crown by his father, before another beast has the chance to steal it.

House Sabinius

Ranging from small hounds to enormous beasts, the house Sabinius is commonly referred to as the "House of Wolves". There is a strong connection between House Sabinius and the Royal House of Vespatius, with many members pledging to serve the royal family.

House Domitian

Members of House Domitian typically live on the very edges of the Veldt, where damned souls congregate and can be easily collected for Banquets. Eternally hungry, eternally thin- despite their gluttonous behavior- the members believe that there should be no distinction made between damned souls and innocent ones, dead souls and those still living: all are fit to be devoured.

House Aemilian

Perhaps the least violent of all Pit Beasts (or so they would have you believe), House Aemilian is responsible for keeping all records of the Pit. Histories, laws, lines of sucession: members of House Aemilian remember it all, and are quick to lash out at those who forget.

House Calvarius

A great army of bones and rot and decay.
