The Houses

All noble families are members of a particular house; a coalition of families which lay claim to certain territories and sector assets. House membership is accorded to those who are born into or marry into an established house family.

There are currently seven houses in Tapani. Mecetti, Cadriaan, and Melantha are greater houses, which means they command major factions in the Great Council. The upper families of the greater houses are the most powerful in the sector, and have connections not only throughout the sector, but often on Coruscant and within the Imperial military as well.

Barnaba, Pelagia, Reena and Calispa are the lesser houses. They have less direct influence ont eh Great Council than the greater houses, but since the greater houses depend on them to provide the necessary votes to build commanding coalitions, they can often nudge events in directions favorable to themselves.

Each house conducts its internal affairs a bit differently, but all have certain similarities. Each house is governed by a High Lord (or Lady) and a privy council of advisors. The High Lord is appointed by the heads of each house family, and usually serves until he chooses to retire or dies (in soem cases, either event might be hastened by house members anxious for another to take the reigns.

The Great Council is the ruling body over the noble houses which is comprised of members of each house and allows them votes making decisions for the entirety of the provinces. It is similar to the parliament. A body of government made up of the gentry that makes decisions for all classes within the Tapani sector - excluding the Freeworlds.
