The House of War is one of the three factions of the Lizard race whose seat of power lies in Forbidden City.

BackgroundEdit

Of all three Houses (comprising of War, Dreams and House of Law) it is not only the most powerful house, but also the house from which the rulers of the Ancient Empire originate.[1]

Freely prepared to bring those who challenge the fundamental rights of the people,[2] which are considered privilege, those whom are deemed to not have the privilege are retained as slaves by the House; a system which began with "the conquest of 'belligerent foreigners' millennia ago".[3]

Historically, their slaves would be from all races, including their own and were severely abused,[4] however, as time passed conditions improved and the end of slavery for lizards came to an end; the enslavement of other races continues.[5]
