"To change the fate of a lucky few, to alter their future forever, as kind as she is fair. Levana gives them a second chance at redemption, for not all commoners are born common."
Name: House Blackburn
Residence: Though the Blackburn Estate used to stand proudly within the capitals walls, as their reputation diminished so did the kings tolerance of them. It also didn't help that their manor was burned down in a mysterious and unsolved fire. With all of the death that has surrounded the house, many saw them as an omen of back luck, and thus the estate as moved from inside the capital to its outskirts.
One would expect a disgraced Noble House to have a disgraced noble home, but the Blackburn Manor is everything but. Levana made sure that the building was as big and flashy as her money would allow, not that she really had to pay for it. Beauty goes a long way!
Known For: Long ago House Blackburn's power rivaled that of the Silvas and Vermillions, being just below them on the pyramid, but with each passing generation their influence and strength faded. Recently the House birthed three heirs said to have the power to bring it back to the mighty house it once was but due to misfortune, supposedly only one of those heirs remain. Levana Blackburn. With almost no one left in the family aside from her, she has taken it upon herself to repopulate the house in a less traditional sense. Adoption.
The house's animal, the raven, symbolizes many things. Magic. Death. Misfortune. Its wings scorched and tattered but it continues to fly, rising from the ashes like a mighty Pheonix, nothing will bring it down. This was Levana's choice, though the Raven has always represented the house, the wings are a new touch symbolizing all the house has been through and it continues to soar, just as the house continues to grow under Levana's helping hand.
"My children, the Blackburn name is a gift bestowed upon you, dare not bring it shame."
- Bronze+ Grimoire
- The original family possessed earthy magics but that is not a requirement of the orphans.
- Everyone aside from Levana (and Selene) in the family is adopted. She hand picks from the orphanage those with great magic potential to adopt, plucking them from their life of poverty and placing them in luxury. The age is the only thing that matters to her, they must be close to fifteen. (Any Orphan wanting to join should be in the 15-18 age range or should have been initially, they can be a bit older now.)
- It is not only Orphans, Levana has also paid parents for their children and adopted them.
