Other Houses: Hendrake
Thumbnail Sketch of House Hendrake
- Founded by Swayvill’s and Alberta’s elder daughter Henrietta.
- The current Head of House is Belissa Minobee, the only female Grand Duchess in her own right.
- She has four children: Lintra, Gunnar, Borel (deceased) and Emelie
- Hendrake succession follows the female line, unlike the majority of other Chaos Houses, which have patrilineal succession.
The Heir to the House is Duchess Lintra, Belissa’s elder daughter. She has an “on again, off again” relationship with Benedict of Amber.
- Belissa’s daughter Emelie was married to Duke Daveth Helgram.
- Daveth and Emelie had two daughters, Elowen and Eithne.
- Hendrake’s most famous specialist troops are the Hellmaids, led by Belissa’s granddaughter Gilva (daughter of Lintra and Benedict).
- Gilva has a daughter named Katrine, who was married to Duke William Helgram and is the mother of Dara Hendrake-Helgram.
- The House is best known for its martial capabilities, and comprises a formidable military force.
- Hendrake and Helgram are very close allies, in part because they both descend from daughters of Swayvill, rather than sons, and intermarriages and liaisons between the two Houses are common.
- Hendrake has a more neutral attitude towards Amber than Helgram, but is distinctly positive towards Benedict.
