A strongly matriarchal house, House Xanthippe is renown for their Moon Bases. Their fiefs almost exclusively contained on several moons, including their largest on Aragon's moon, the most worked on Cadavus's Moon and their first and 'homeplanet', Luna (the moon of Urth). Women are typically leaders and warriors, while the men are most commonly artisans and healers. All of the lore and law of the House is contained in a text call "The Measure". The house maintains neutrality in all things, as they serve as mercenaries to all that care to hire them. Indeed, their mercenaries are considered to be canny and tough, an elite force that commands a high price. The house is also reknowned for producing fine wines.
