House Armanis

Holdings: Mobile Barracks and Manufacturing Facility on Eastern Continent

Banner and Arms:

- Colors: blood red and gold
- Crest: bound scroll

House Traits: Mercenary and Ruthless

Primary Domains: Military (Workers) – mercenaries

Secondary Domains: Industrial (Produce) – packaged foods

History and Overview:

The men and women who would become House Armanis moved with the Imperial family when the capital was relocated from Salusa Secundus to Kaitain and settled on the most remote of its four moons, which became a haven for pirates, smugglers, and all other types associated with the black market of space. Most of the communities were small and isolated, valuing rugged self-sufficiency and fought constantly amongst themselves until four centuries ago when the rulers of Armanis unified the moon’s factions through a remarkably brutal campaign and earned the patronage and ennoblement from the Emperor. They eschew their Landsraad title among themselves and prefer to go by the title of Condottieri, Captain, or Great Captain.

These days, they train and organize “Free Companies” which are the most sought-after mercenaries in the Imperium. With the destruction of the Atreides and under an Imperial writ, a branch of House Armanis was given lands on the Eastern Continent of Caladan, where they have opened a special training center for their mercenaries and opened a manufacturing facility that produces packaged foods used by groups such as armed forces and long-range expeditions.
