Historical information
Date of Establishment Year 21 Day 291




Founded as a Ruling House during the Grand Syndic [Thresk]'s Nuz Bazan Reforms, the House elected [Retan Coda] as its first Aristocra. Coda defined the House as the defenders of Chiss Tradition and Heritage during a time of great change for the Chiss Ascendancy. The House's more traditionalist outlook made it acceptable to citizens but also unappealing to others.

Rise of Rono

After Prard`aga Rono resigned as Syndic of Defense, he was offered a place within the House. Dagaro's leadership of the House came at a time when the Ruling Houses were discussing and debating the role of the Houses within the Ascendancy.

After Grand Syndic Thresk dissolved the Council of Fanmilies, the House had to decide on its future. A rename of the House was briefly considered, but it was decided that the House would retain the name for purposes of continuity.

The House would also ratify new House Bylaws which both codified some of their existing policies, but also maintained the Nuz Bazan policy of an elected House Leader. The new bylaws also offered a contained a rarity in galactic history: term limits. Based on the principle that authority without accountability is tyranny, the total amount of time the Patriarch(the older title of Patriarch was restored following the Bylaws being ratified) could serve was now fixed at five years.
