General Information[]

Trevalion is an Azzallese house and its members are scions of Azza. As a result, they are often extremely proud. Because Azzalle occupies much of the northern coast of Terre d'Ange, House Trevalion has a substantial fleet. They also hold the Pointe des Soeurs, which is close enough to see the white cliffs of Alba. Members of the house typically have black hair and grey eyes.

House Trevalion fell into disgrace for a time due to the treasonous schemes of Lyonette de Trevalion and her son Baudoin. Although Marc and his daughter Bernadette played no part in the treason, they neglected to inform the King. The duchy of Trevalion was stripped from them and given to Percy de Somerville, who in turn gave it to his son Ghislain. During the Skaldi invasion, Marc de Trevalion was recalled from exile and a match between Bernadette and Ghislain was proposed. Marc's title was not restored; instead it was held in trust for the firstborn of Bernadette and Ghislain.

After Percy de Somerville's treason, Ghislain disowned his house and became formally adopted into House Trevalion. He then became known as Ghislain nó Trevalion.
