House Moustfur

The ruling family of Dagastown Burrow, the House of Moustfur was a prestigeous cadet branch between the more notable Houses of Drowick and Redelli. Under its careful rule, the burrow of Dagastown enjoyed a long era of prosperity and good relations with human countries.  

Culture

Gender Roles

While most Vermoni great houses have male-preferenced gender roles, with few exceptions, the cultural stigma towards women and girls in House Moustfur is exceptionally mysogonistic. Women were traditionally raised to cook, clean, read, write, and bear children, while males are taught at a young age to do maths, read and write literature, hone their social skills, express themselves artistically, study history and geography, train to become a soldier, and learn other languages. It is unknown if these rigid gender roles were adopted by Moustfur during their reign over Dagastown, or if they were adopted beforehand and spread throughout the burrow at a later date.

Naming Conventions

Initially, the naming conventions of Moustfur were like any other noble house, however a distinct cultural fascination with the human-tongue evolved, nearing the 11th century, towards a more Jorazian and Kovalan convention of speaking. Names like Sommen, Telian, Ardor, and Shenul are all common Dagastown, and by extension Moustfur, given names.

Record Keeping

Unlike other Vermoni familes, House Moustfur traditionally did not record much in terms of female spouses or children, thus records only show patriarchal lineage from fathers and sons. This cultural preference for males seeped down further into even mentioning, or even referencing, women at all.   1 Leekbow Moustfur 921-955 2 Queak Moustfur 943-972, Arbuck Moustfur 943-981, Ferwilde Moustfur 943-959 3 Queak I 964-1004,
