Clans of Vornair

 

Vornair Dictionary: Clan

noun: Clan is a term used very often in Vornair as a close synonym for House and Family, as well as those closely related to it. Originally the Clan name was the name for a group of people who necessarily weren't related by blood, but in the last centuries the names have been strongly tied to certain bloodlines and adopted as surnames.

The Clans of Vornair are divided into five categories:

High Clans

When the Clan's patriarch/matriarch bears the title of King/Queen. Their pledge of fealty is to the people of the Kingdom of Vornair as a whole.
Current High Clans: Clan Rhyne (The Rhynelands)

Great Clans

When the Clan's patriarch/matriarch bears the title of Duke/Duchess.
Current High Clans: Clan Alabast (The Stormlands), Clan Aritaur (The Conclave), Clan Bälen (Erzhalden), Clan Cardan (Fehu), Clan Drayce (The High Seas), Clan Fenix (Fenixvalle), Clan Hart (Aechena) & Clan Zephyr (The Anemoi)

Major Clans

When the Clan's patriarch/matriarch bears the title of Count/Countess.

Minor Clans

When the Clan's patriarch/matriarch bears the title of Baron/Baroness or the position of Mayor/Mayoress.

Clans

When the patriatch/matriarch of a family holds a surname granted by bloodline but do not hold a title. Many of these Clans own some land but this is not officially required for the classification. This is the only type of Clan that one can't pledge fealty to.
