The Knockany Court

The Knockany are eternal, or at least the stories start that way, instead of once upon a time.


Under the benevolent rule of King Revan, the Knockany are at a crossroads. Their power has never been stronger, but the internal turmoil is building. Revan is courting an Unseelie. The laws enacted after the death of the last outsider Queen, Revan's mother Satele Shan, have made it so a sitting King cannot marry someone with mostly Unseelie blood. The Knockany aren't running a purity test, but they want their rulers to be at least 50% Knockany. If Revan's love for Calla rules him, he will have to abdicate.

Many strong houses are in the Knockany Court as well.

House Cottingly

An ancient house, their saddest hour was when King Brand of Amber requested that Radella Cottingly, who could track a shadow of a cloud that passed a year ago, was asked to find Khelendos of Amber. After a harmless prank Khelendos committed the most despicable act of a long, sordid career by killing the person who rescued him from an eternity in limbo. Seeking to remove the curse from himself assuage his guilt, he left his last daughter, Khelynda, with the Lord of the House Cottingly, Zarander Cottingly.
