Vassal of Velenosa
Words: "Neither by chance nor by fate."
Sigil: A gold hawk on a split red and black field.
According to legend, House Malvici's ancestor was a brilliant general during the Reckoning, a master of deceptive warfare whose small army's distractions, feints, and traps delayed the demons' advance on Arx. Historically, House Malvici has fielded a larger standing army and a larger, better-trained militia than its competitors in the Lyceum and been unafraid to use them. The family that believes in making its own luck avoids leaving anything to chance. Although the records are largely lost, there's a belief that House Hawkmour was a cadet branch of Malvici that split off many centuries ago, explaining the similarities in their sigils.

Description: Southport is one of the few cities whose entire population trains for war. Under House Malvici, the City of Swords is a regimented military meritocracy, the birthplace of the Lyceum's dramatic fencing style. Its gardens and terrariums supply herbs for medicines and poisons alike, while its strategic harbor is the midway point on the Arx-Sanctum trade route.
Landmarks: Constructed in mid 1007 AR, Southport boasts the Training Academy of Gloria, a frequent visit for templars and all the martially minded to pay their respects to Gloria while on the Pilgrimage Path.
Established in 1/21/1009 AR, the Goldhawk Naval Base offers excellent shipbuilding facilities, as well as an armory, barracks and a command post. This gives Southport superb logistical support to oversee the Empyrean trade route.
Creators of Southport Steel.
Trends: Since the construction of the Training Academy, perhaps no city in Arvum has more Rites of Gloria performed routinely, with duelists frequently traveling to the city to hone their skills. This in turn has made it extremely popular with the Champions' Guild, and Oathlander styles of honor duels are becoming the norm.
Lady Thea oversaw a project to increase the land defenses around the city in late 1013 AR.
Megaris is a new coastal town, where the former Clan Brass Hawk is settled.
Founding member of the Empyrean Trade Route.
