UPDATE: The second house has been added now that #039 is up.

UPDATE 2: The last house is unlocked...partially. It will be updated when we get further into the finale arc.

House Harmonia

It was the royal house of Unova for several centuries, hailing their ancestry from the “Grey Sheperd,” who had befriended the Original Dragon and (supposedly) forged a contract to keep peace between humans and Pokemon in the region. The Harmonias are also credited for founding the first Unovan civilization where Pokemon and humans were able to live without conflict. Many members in this family has the ability to understand and communicate with Pokemon.

Generally, historical archives have revealed that the Harmonia kings and queens were fair rulers of their kingdom. However, many of them were also percieved as being overpassionate about their beliefs, and disagreement with them sometimes resulted in war. The Great Unovan War is said to have resulted from such conflict. A few decades after the Great Unovan War, the Harmonias fell from power and disappeared from history.

Despite their fall, the original contract is said to have remained intact. Scholars say their ancestral fortress was Dragonspiral Tower. Their sigil consists of two identical dragons forming a circle, which is to represent the balance that the Harmonia House vowed to maintain between humans and Pokemon. Their motto is "Live in Harmony."

Known members of Harmonia: N

House Cerea

It is one of the High Houses in Unova have sworn alliance to House Harmonia. It also happened to be one of the richest, thanks to their stronghold being located at the agricultural, southern region of Unova. Due to their wealth, many other Houses tried to curry favors from this family, or at least make alliances with them. Even though House Cerea is a relatively pacifistic family, their involvement in certain historical feuds caused them to make some dangerous enemies.

Similar to House Harmonia, House Cerea have several family members who are able to completely understand and communicate with Pokemon. The Cereas hail their ancestory from Demetris, a dancer who was said to have helped bring bountiful harvests when she befriended Landorus. Their traditional headquarters are in Abundant Shrine, and several Unovans are known to be living descendants of this House or the minor Houses that branched off from the original family. Much of Unova’s written history has been sourced from ancient archives that this family has kept for centuries.

Their sigil consists of an orange, 8-petaled flower over a trisected shield, the latter of which is supposed to represent the kami trio Pokemon. Their motto is “Share the Bounty.”

Known members of Cerea: Alder, Benga, Cedric Juniper*, Aurea Juniper*, Drayden*, Iris*
*These characters hail from minor houses that branched from House Cerea

Actually, it was stated by kynim in one of her older comments on this page that Nina is not a part of any of these houses. Although she hopes that it will still be interesting to read about when the third house is revealed. :)

I shall automatically assume that Nina and Kynim are members of the third house. Nina has just 'observed' N 'overpassionately' burning Alder for 'not agreeing with his beliefs', and now she is going to 'avenge'.

After the war, they got exiled to Sinnoh or something.

Didn't remember about Cerea. But awesome nonetheless.

I'm quickly reaching the point where I took a hiatus and stopped reading for a while, so I'm gonna make an educated guess and propose that if one house is based on the Tao trio and one based on the genies, then the last one could be the musketeer trio.

I kind of like that the three house are not purely based on the Tao trio and that many other characters belong to them to some extent. Because even if the dragons are important in Unova, in the game if I remember well, the dragon of the hero and Kyurem are kind of overlooked and other legendaries do have their importance.

I am very curious to see where Nina fits in it. At first I was so sure she was part of it, but then her family comes from Sinnoh and she seems a bit like an outsider. Well I am rubish at trying to guess the plot in general and that's a good thing because most of the time, you authors are over my expectations. :D

Good job and good luck for your next chapter/project etc.

Hahaha yeah....it's sort of odd how the lore of the legendaries in Unova are not very developed saved for the tao trio.

I'll tell you right now Nina is not in any of these houses, but I hope the third and final house will still be fun for you guys to read about when the time comes :>

Interesting and well thought out.

However, there is one thing...
You DO realize that Isshu/Unova is based off of New York City, AKA the most American city in all of the United States of America, and thus a Nobility does not make any sense whatsoever?

I am truly not trying to be patronizing or mean or anything; I'm just wondering why you went the Nobility route for an America-based Region.

:iconky-nim:
ky-nim Featured By Owner Edited Nov 12, 2014   Digital Artist
Even if it's a NYC-based region, the mythos of the Unova region still hails back to nobilities with the tao trio (and the kings) so I went with that and expanded it for the sake of the nuzlocke.

If you have issue with that, look for another comic.
Reply
:iconluminabalderson:
LuminaBalderson Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2014
I understand.

It's not too much of an Isshu for me; I was just curious was all.

Also, I'm sorry if I came off as rude or insulting at all; I wasn't trying to.


(In all honesty, I love your Nuzlockes! The Nobility thing is just a nitpick I have.)

How often are do you get the comics out? I know these take times (I'm an author myself, so I know how long it takes to write a good story, and it probably takes even longer to draw it all out), but I just want to have some sort of estimate because this series is awesome. Like, really awesome.
