|Species||Human (Alsakani/Hapan Primarily)|
Born of Alsakan and Hapes, the Vir`uan Family primarily consists of Humans specifically of Alsakani and Hapan stock. The Family has endured since before the 1st Alsakan Conflict and has suffered its share of rises and falls. The family is just starting to recover from the major losses it sustained during the First Galactic Civil War. Divided across the galaxy, the name of Vir`uan begins its rise once more, its fate unchanged, for through time, we endure. With the family merger of the Hapan Vir`uans the Ev'reuin have once again taken on a Matriarchal Stance, with Sia Vir`uan appointed as current Matriarch of the family. The merger has led to the Vir`uan name being the official name of the family as of Year 22, with most of the original Ev'reuin line having died out. The traditional words of the family have always been "Through Time, We Endure", but in recent years the inclusion of the phrase "To Yourself Be True" has become quite common amongst the younger generations of the family. The Vir`uan Line of Hapes is considered the direct descendants of Artemia Ev'reuin, and thus considered the Prime Bloodline.

The family was formed prior to the start of the 1st Alsakan Conflict with the Galactic Republic by Artemia Ev'reuin, First of Her Name. She constructed the ancient family home of Nocturnal within a deep valley around Old Archais that would later be renamed as the Artemia Veil in her honor. Her reign as family Matriarch was cut short when she perished in the final battle against the Republic during the Conflict. Due to navigational beacon termination, the Alsakan Fleet found itself stranded and unable to retreat, and it was thanks to the actions of Artemia and the ultimate sacrifice of her flagship and life; that the Fleet was able to restore the beacon and plot a course back to Alsakan. Her heir and brother, Regnald Ev'reuin was named Patriarch of the House and named Dux of Archais in thanks of Artemia's sacrifice, a move that would begin the familial rise to power. During Regnald's reign as the family patriarch, the foundations of Nocturnal were expanded upon, including the finalization of Mist House, the creation of a family crypt, and the construction of the Weeping Walls. The rest of Regnald's reign was marked by the expansion of Ev'reuin Military Assets including the formal creation of the "Heritage Guard" and adding two additional ships to the Ev'reuin Fleet.
7th Alsakan Conflict
The 7th Alsakan Conflict marked the greatest expansion in authority and power of the Ev'reuin Family. It began in the earliest days of the conflict when the Alsakan Museum of Cultural Preservation was destroyed by orbital bombardment by Republic Forces. In direct response to this, the family formed the Xenvaer Institute with the intent of preserving the knowledge, culture, and history of Alsakan and its people. Following the conflict extensive the family conducted extensive excavations at the site of the now destroyed museum in order to reclaim as much as possible, which was secured in new Reliquary Vaults hidden deep under the Nocturnal Palace. During the middle stages of the conflict the Heritage Guard, under the direct command of Caesin Ev'reuin boarded a Republic Foray-class Blockade Runner dubbed the Star of the Core. Upon securing the vessel it was safely escorted back to Alsakan where it was heavily retrofitted with the latest technological innovations. Though old by military standards the refitted vessel proofed an excellent boon to the war effort as it was capable of slipping behind Republic lines relatively unnoticed and relaying crucial strategic data back to the Alsakan Fleet. Following the conflict, the ship was renamed the Legatum Sanguinis Gloriae and formally became the Flagship of the family. It received additional and extensive modifications allowing it to serve within this capacity.
From Rising Fire to Smouldering Ash
The First Galactic Civil War would mark the end of an era for the Ev'reuin Family, as the galaxy quite literally came clambering down around them. Alsakan, a cultural crown jewel of the Core Worlds found itself the target of both Republic and CIS military endeavors when its leadership contemplated using the war to embark on yet another Alsakan Conflict with the Galactic Republic. As a result, the world found itself at odds with both military powers. Critical areas of the world were rapidly occupied by the Republic desiring its strategic position near Coruscant while the CIS was poised to lay siege to it. One such position in the world was that of the Artemia Valley, home of the Ev'reuin Family. The household quickly saw its assets pressed into service on behalf of the Republic, with all its ships taken save for the Legatum, which had been deemed too old for a practical naval application.
As the orbital bombardment began the family watched in horror as the valley was burned to a crisp. Trees that had grown for generations blown to cinders, the Old District city that had served as the families ward since its founding leveled, and the colorful glimmering blasts bombarding the shield of the Nocturnal Palace. One would have been mesmerized by the beauty of the lights if not for the pure horror it was inflicting around it. Knowing the shield would not last for long the family moved everything they could from the secure Reliquary Vaults beneath the Palace aboard the Legatum, along with as many people as the ship could hold. As the shield generator within Nocturnal blew out the Legatum blasted off from the surface flying through the torrential downpour of laser blasts. Its shields giving way, and its hull shuddering from the pressure the ship successfully ran the blockade but at a tremendous cost. Upon its arrival at its new home in the Hapes Cluster, the vessel's hyperdrive and engine array utterly blew out leaving it stranded within the Relephon System, where the core of the Ev'reuin Family would sit down roots until the day came that Nocturnal could be reclaimed.

Sanguis Sanguinem Meum

Artifacts & Relics
Ev'reuin Blade - A saber crafted for the fifth Patriarch of the Ev'reuin Family. It is maintained in the Crypta de Domus Historia within Mist House; ancestral home of the Ev'reuin within Nocturnal. It has been known on occasion to be featured as an exhibit aboard the Legatum Sanguinis Gloriae appearing in the Blood Throne Gallery.
Murakami Orchid - This Orchid has been within the care of the household for generations. To most members of the family it is nothing more than a strange orchid growing by itself upon a pedestal at the heart of the Nocturnal Gardens. Murakami Orchids are known to be force sensitive, and are capable of extensively long life spans. Family Legend tells that ancient force sensitive members of the Family once communed with the Orchid, and that it can to a limited degree relay its accumulated knowledge to any force sensitive who sits with it in deep meditation. These claims are considered mere speculation, as no modern force sensitives have been born into the family and thus the claim has went untested.
Vir`uan Undertakings was established as a conglomerate holding group for the numerous business endeavors undertaken by members of the family. The organization is responsible for overseeing, and managing the various divisions of business the family embarks on as they strive to reclaim their once near sanctified place as Merchant Lords of Alsakan. To the family this is a matter of civic duty and pride, to restore what was once lost. The business ventures of the family are considered quite varied, ranging from advanced to the mundane, and everything in between.
Xenvaer Institute - Established in the earlier generations of the Household as the Ev'reuin Reliquary with the purpose of maintaining an archive and library of all knowledge in the galaxy. It is considered vitally important to the continuity of civilization to preserve the great cultural works of civilizations from across both known and unknown space. In Year 21 the Ev'reuin Reliquary, and the Arcturus Academy merged to form the Xenvaer Institute with the goal of educating the masses. From obtaining degrees in various fields of learning, to expanding the great libraries of knowledge, the Institute strives to serve as a beacon in the darkness of the galaxy.
Relephon Star Services - Founded by Atar'a Vir`uan as Relephon Star Shipping; a Tibanna Gas mining an shipping operation on Relephon. The business has primarily serviced to the transport of Tibanna Gas around the Hapes Cluster for the last fifty eight years. Approximately ten years it ago it began minimal shipping services outside of the Hapes Cluster. To this day RSS services provide and unique and exclusive to residents of the Hapes Consortium, as well as those members of the Ev'reuin Family who live beyond the secluded star cluster. In Year 19 the Company began to broaden its range of services and as a result its name was changed to Relephon Star Services.
Knot Hole Diner - The Knot Hole Diner is considered a landmark to those who traverse the Knot Holes to enter Hapes. Famed for its food and drink, and the fact that the service droids havent received a proper motivator overhaul since the days of the Republic. The Knot Hole Diner was purchased by the Vir`uan Family in Year 19, the business model has remained unchanged.
Gallinore Winery - Established in the early days of Year 22, the Gallinore Winery provides the greatest and most refined wines in all of the Hapes Cluster. External shipping of the product is slated to occur in Early Spring, Year 22.
