The Five Dark Houses

Also known as the Five Houses of Fallen Stars, these constellations govern the same abilities as their reflections in Creation. The children of Ouranos of the Thousand And One Eyes are the keepers of the five Dark Houses. Ouranos created his five dread sons after being betrayed by his daughters, the Five Maidens. After his death in the Primordial War, Ouranos became a Malfean and his sons became the guardians of the Stars of the Underworld. More than demons, less than Malfeans, they are the only true Dead Gods. Through their stars and the Calendar of Setesh do the Dead read the future of the Underworld.

  • The Broken Barge Of Souls? is the first of the Dark Houses, ruled by Charon. The Wound, the Vulture, the Barge, the Bone, and the Storm fall into the realm of this House, representing the endurance required by the harrowing journey to the Underworld and the trip itself. The Broken Barge's color is brown
  • The Forgotten Prison Of Insanity? is the second of the Dark Houses and is feared by the living and the dead beyond any other. Madness comes without warning and strikes the innocent as equally as the guilty, sparing none from its dread gaze. The stars of Madness represent the powers of subtle violence and treachery as well as mental instability and uncertainty. The color of the Forgotton Prison is orange
  • The Sinister Theatre Of Shadows? is the third House; Hecate's House of Shadow. He is a thin, dark-skinned man with a large spider on his shoulder. The Sinister Theatre's color is black. The constellations of the Splinter, the Mirror, the Dagger, the Obelisk and the Claw fall into the House of Darkness.
  • The Sunken Temple Of Forgettings? is ruled by Posiedon. Aged and muscular, carrying a three-pronged trident the god also called Neptune rules the fourth House, the House of Mystery, often associated with the seas and rivers of the Underworld. The Sunken Temple's color is grey.
  • The Solemn Chapel Of Prayers? is also called the House of Death, last of the Five. Hades, sometimes known as Pluto, is respected greatly by the few mortals that know of him. He is the eldest of Ouranos's sons, twin to Saturn. The color of the Unchanging Charnel House is white.
