The Faithful and the Bold

History

Founded by Bertram de Moley, a faithful man-at-arms to Lucas Kambei (Saint Lextius), the House of De Moley has deep roots in the church and faith. So faithful was Bertram, that when Lextius closed down the jumpgate to Dogen and sealed his world away, Bertram chose exile with his friend and master.

Beyond Bertram, there is no clear record of the De Moley until the ascension of Hugh De Moley, who was a commander in the service of House Windsor during the Disapora. The De Moley have a loose association with that house, which was later folded into the Hawkwood. Hugh himself had a reputation as an avid pilot and trouble shooter, equally adept on the ground and in the air, making them ideally suited explorers and frontiersmen.

Over the years, much of the ancient tradition had faded, especially after Yathrib was isolated. As the 2nd Republic throve, the De Moley found themselves odd men out. They admired individualism and rewarded exceptionalism. The 2nd Republic, they felt ,over weaned its people. Apathy grew.

Yet in the crucible of Yathrib, the De Moley's formed new roots, especially after the ascension of Godfrey, the founder of the modern house.

It was Godfrey, who with Malcolm Xavier Justinian, vowed to keep open the jump gate from Aylon to Yathrib after the Fall of the 2nd Republic so that Pilgrims could still come to Yathrib. They helped to found the legendary Brother Battle. It was also they who defended Yathrib against the Sathraists, although Malcom was slain and Godfrey crippled.

From that time, the De Moley have remained more provincial, tending to their growing interests on Yathrib, but were instrumental in gaining official recognition of Brother Battle as an arm of the Universal Church.
