The Scions of the Ithmia is a House within the village of Eleusis. Like their forestal brethren, the Heartwood Kin, the Scions make Nature their priority in all things, and dedicate themselves to the protection and preservation of such, knowing that it is Nature which sustains and succors all through their lives.

Devoted to the protection of the natural world at all costs, the Scions of the Ithmia are passionately opposed to those who exploit and diminish it for personal gain. They are fierce guardians of ecological balance, charged with stamping out any threats against it. Proudly do they offer their lives in service, quick to claim vengeance against those who would blight the earth.

The Scions of the Ithmia herald the truth of the land by virtue of edification, public ceremony, and dominant force: through their efforts are the blindfolds of the ignorant lifted, unveiling the majesty of the natural world. Limitless in number and relentless in their endeavours, the Scions of the Ithmia call upon the sheer ferocity of Nature to bring about retribution. At their call does natural power come forth, salvaging the tainted and cleansing the rot, affording fresh growth to a locus once plagued by the caprice of mankind.

Fortified amongst the boughs of the forests, the Scions of the Ithmia are consumed by a single vision: To see the roots of Nature's influence spread throughout the known world.


Founding

The Scions were originally founded in 678 AF. With the continuing presence of the Ventos Allegos beginning to overpower the forest and Eleusis, the woods began to become distorted. Awakened from her slumber by the arrival of the magical creature, Lady Artemis combined her powers with Lady Gaia's to remove it and rejuvenate the forest. Trees began to heal and change with the surge of natural energy, including the hollow ones containing the three forestal Great Houses. The three organisations ceased to exist, but a short time later the two Patrons created the fledgling Heartwood Kin and the Scions of the Ithmia, vigorous new Houses to continue upholding the solemn duties left by the old Houses and dissolution of Oakstone.
