Market District / The Glint of Steel

Astraea was humming quietly to herself as she moved around the shop, tidying up some of the displays. Most of them were blunted items, of course, with the actual stock being kept in the back where only one of the attendants could get to it. It was safer that way, preventing - or at least minimizing - the use of these items as weapons by thieves. And, also, generally making them less attractive to steal because they wouldn't hold a proper edge.

Astraea didn't often man the shop herself these days - usually leaving it to one of her siblings while she handled trade partners and managed the paperwork, and oversaw some of the actual weapons production. It was actually kind of refreshing to be back in the shop, she had to admit. Even if she did have a meeting later that afternoon.

Finally she settled back behind the counter, turning her attention to the copy of the design Master Cassimer wanted that she'd kept for herself. She'd passed a copy of it to the forgers already, they were beginning the task of making it. Something about the design... it was brutal, she had to admit that. It didn't seem to be something the Justicars would approve of and yet... it was what she had been asked for for use by them.

Astraea folded the paper and put it away, pushing the thought from her mind. It wasn't for her to worry about, is what Astraea told herself. But worry she did, a little.

About half of her attention was dedicated to listening for anyone entering the shop with her, while the rest drifted for just a moment.

So this is a generalized opening for house Teresi members. Below are some of the ideas that I have open but I'm open for basically whatever else might be a thought, just let me know what you're thinking!

House Teresi's Wiki page can be found here.

[Name] Teresi
Male | Mid-to-late twenties.

Astraea's husband. Took her last name, instead of her taking his, so he is probably a second-son, possibly from a lower noble house. Their currently stated dynamic is that he isn't sure how to handle the fact that Astraea does not yield to him and that she handles the majority of the actual business workings of the house. This is up for alteration, and also up for change across play if that's a thing (in the sense that he grows to take some of it from her shoulders bc he learns how to do it without undermining her, or so).

If he is willing he likely handles the family ledgers and finances. And possibly deals with the choice of adding slaves to the household or not on the whole.

Teresi Siblings
Under the age of 28 | genders open.
These are Astraea's younger siblings. They likely help in different aspects of the family business. Probably would have a preference (over seeing the craftsman, some may actually be metalworkers themselves, dealing with materials shipments, manning the shop (or overseeing hired help to man the shop), etc).

This is honestly really broad, and it's open for a few who aren't... you know interested in the family business. Maybe they want to marry into another family and are pushing Astraea to set that up, etcetc. This is wide open.

Assorted Aunts/Uncles/Cousins
Ages varied, some may be older than Astraea, some younger.
Also very broad, some probably work among the family business. Some probably don't. Some are married, some aren't. There is even some room for a few who may not think Astraea was the best choice of heir even if it is traditional for the eldest Teresi to take over regardless of gender.

Letters to Esmera / House Addition

Could I get house Teresi added to the list when someone gets a chance (no rush ofc)? ... and I did finally settle on Iris for their emblem.
sorry if this is the wrong place for that. ><

Plotting / War of Hearts

Disclaimer: I am notoriously bad at remembering to update plotters. If a character is listed on my page but not here, you are still free to mention them here for plotting purposes.

One of these days I am going to finish this. Not tonight probably, but one day.

| Slave | House Essair | Hume |
| Single | Pan | Poly (under the right circumstances) |

Currently: Sandalio is currently in house Essair and is one of two bodyguards tasked with keeping Kassandros alive and functional. He is slowly but surely falling in love with his master, because he's a glutton for punishment, clearly. He's friendly, but he doesn't go very far from his owner (obviously) so his threading opportunities are open but only within a range.

Notes: He's an ex-blood fighter and probably has friends in the Lancaster blood stables. He may eventually go visit them. He's got two siblings. There's a chance he has a few small children running around but none of them should be over, like, 10.

Lycaon [Alasdair]
| Slave | House Essair | Hume |
| Single | Straight(ish) | Mono (... we're pretty sure) |

Currently: The other bodyguard of Kassandros Essair. He's less attached than Sandalio, but he's still rather dedicated to his job. He ends up at the gate a lot because it works out that way, tbh.

Notes: He's an ex-pleasure slave trained by house Salonus. He's not a guy you want to heavy handed flirt with unless he gives you very clear positive signals because he will panic and that will manifest as him lashing out if you corner him. He's can be friendly, but tends to keep to himself. He's not an open guy, not the sort that'll spill his life story on you... but he'll listen, if you need him to. He's got want ads for siblings up - Beneath the Stars.

| Commons | House Asheron | Hume |
| In love | Pan | Tentatively Poly |

Currently: Recently freed, Alcides has returned to house Asheron because he doesn't really want to be anywhere else. He has retaken his post as Livia's bodyguard. Threading opportunities mostly center around being in that house.

Notes: He's likely got friends in house Asheron, but probably not many outside of it (other than those who once were in house Asheron). He's spent most of his life in one single house - and is aware of how privileged he's been because of that.

Damian Cassimer
| Noble | Adoptive son of House Cassimer | Hume [Mage] |
| Single | Gay | Believed to be Mono |

Currently: At the moment, Damian is torn between his Father's house - where he is trying to earn the pride/respect/whatever of his adoptive father Marcus Cassimer, and the Side House where his brother lives, because Lucius has always loved him and always encouraged him to be himself. He's, ah, a little confused, to be brutally honest. Oh, and then there's the awkward friendship with the brothel slave he met once. Yeah...

Inetkaes Lucain
