Dynastic Records

House Redwynn

The dynasty almost fell in a single night.

The Redwynn fleet, led by the flagship 'Eldramaron', had forged into the black, rallying to the defence of the family's fledgling grip on the systems of the Unbeholden Reach. Rumours of horror - of ghost-ships, pirates and vanishing colonies - had begun to reach Footfall. Humanity's great sally into the unknown darkness was dwindling. But the Redywnn heir and his brothers, each with a craft of their own, were ready to see off whatever terror menaced the holdings of their dynasty.

None of the vessels returned. Garbled transmissions, distorted by distance and incoherent screaming, was the last thing heard from the armada. It was followed only by a sudden, ringing silence.

Lady Augustine Redwynn, having long bequeathed the Warrant to her sons, wept tears of grief for them onto the glass of it's protective plinth. Even aboard her refitted war vessel 'the Lazarus', she struggled to maintain the family's various colonies in the following years, stripped of the martial power of the armada. As expenses mounted and avaricious competitors circled, she was forced to sell or weaken her interests in many holdings around the Expense. It pained her adoring officers and crew to see the Old Lady's steely resolution wane, as though her inner fires had guttered out.

Her decline was slow but inexorable. The sickness which befell her was cruel and degenerative, resisting analysis or cure. Though she poured her remaining wealth into the fight - hiring physicians from across the Expanse and equipping the ship with a medical research facility - it was clear that she was growing closer to death. At the last, in the hope of preserving the dynasty she had fought all her life to preserve, she made a deal with the Magi of the Mechanicus.

The ancient Stasis-Throne was an immense and arcane device, requiring constant maintenance and expert upkeep. Even for a Rogue Trader, the cost could not be borne in Gelt alone. What emerged from the fierce negotiations was the Tetrarch Pact. Ceding 50% of Small Council seats and a share of dynastic profits to the Emissariats of the Adeptus Mechanicus, House Redwynn was given full access to the resources and expertise of the Forge. The unique arrangement would challenge each new Tetrarch, as they sought to balance competing interest and rejuvenate the dynasty they now commanded.
