Peleps Kaizoku Household
THE PELEPS KAIZOKU HOUSEHOLD
At any given moment, most of this household is out to sea. Peleps Kaizoku, and most of his offspring, are privateers—pirates tasked by the Realm with preying on enemy vessels, but without being an ofﬁcial tool of the Realm. Publicly, the Realm decries the actions of the Kaizoku; privately, it makes sure no one ever actually catches them. The Realm sends in the Kaizoku privateers in situations when actions by the Imperial Navy would be too politically awkward.
Other Houses are not fond of House Peleps, as they generally see it as a House of cheats, liars, matchstick men and manipulators. While the Empress approved of this behavior, the other Houses do not. Unfortunately, with the utter destruction of House Iselsi, no other House is so prepared to manage the Imperial Navy.
