Eglantine House is one of the thirteen houses of the Court of Night-Blooming Flowers. Eglantine is the house of performance and creativity. Its adepts are all trained to the arts, such as writing, singing, dancing, music, acting or sewing. There is a streak of "madcap genius" in the house and children are encouraged to behave in ways that would be frowned upon in other houses. They say that Naamah charmed the King of Persis with the sweetness of her song.[2]

General Information Edit

At the Midwinter Masque, Eglantine adepts appear dressed as a band of Tsingani.

Shortly after Joscelin Verreuil enters Anafiel Delaunay's service, he is taunted by Eglantine adepts while Phèdre nó Delaunay visits her friend Hyacinthe.

When Phèdre needs a costume for the Midwinter Masque, Cecilie Laveau-Perrin recommends Favrielle nó Eglantine to her. Favrielle is a couturier who was pushed before her debut, giving her a scar on her lip and rendering her unfit for Naamah's Service. She is forced to earn her marque by taking clothing commissions. Phèdre feels sympathy despite Favrielle's caustic attitude toward her and pays her marque.

Eglantine adepts frequently perform at parties and fetes throughout the series. Adepts are allowed to design their own outfits for their debuts. The house itself is repository of obscure lore and learning- Phèdre speculates that some of it is unknown outside the house.

Eglantine livery is white and green.
