Mandrake House is one of the thirteen houses of the Court of Night-Blooming Flowers.
Its canon is dominance, and Mandrake is one of the houses of pain in the Night Court, along with Valerian House. They revere Kushiel as well as Naamah. Adepts are trained to administer pain to patrons. It is the only house besides Valerian to use a signale, but in this case it is for the patron's benefit. They say that Naamah chose her patrons like victims and whipped them to violent pleasures, leaving them sated and half-dead when it was over.
General Information Edit
Mandrake and Valerian have a reciprocal agreement. Adepts from both houses frequently hold Showings on request. Imriel nó Montrève de la Courcel attends a few of these, and in Kushiel's Mercy, Mavros arranges such a showing for Imriel and Sidonie de la Courcel. Mandrake will also send adepts to Valerian if requested, since some Valerian patrons prefer just to watch.
