House Basque is a minor house under the auspices of House Decados. Having risen from status of serfs to freemen through their integration into the Genetech Cartel they became a family of lawyers, scientists and academics. Their high levels of education and technological savvy and then later their adept skill as fighter pilots earned the house hereditary knighthood, thus securing their place as a Minor noble House. Their elevation to noble status came about after the first Emperor Wars, for their aid in fighting House Li Halan and House Van Gelder. The house is lead by Karlus Basque and they primarily serve the Decados by administering Decados' fiefs on Cadiz. The family's main holdings are on the Sebtah continent of Cadiz, with other significant holdings in Herculeum.
