The Empire of Lucarcia is formed of four main islands. Ibini in the east is populated by a snake venerating people. The Jade House is the royal house of Ibini. Ruled by Lili Jade, 'The Verdant Queen', this house is known to use assassins and spies, and to favor the use of poisons to solve their problems. The Verdant Queen is unusual in that she has no personal guard. The standard of the Jade House is a sibilant snake curled around a jade gem.
