Profile[edit | edit source]
The majority of the County of Galatea is a frigid wasteland. A severe famine afflicted the region in the early 1170s.
House Galatea is a branch of House Daphnel and descends from the hero Daphnel, one of the Ten Elites who fought in the War of Heroes. After House Daphnel became divided over an inheritance feud, half of the family defected from the Leicester Alliance to the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and established House Galatea, which was granted the title of count. While members of House Daphnel have not borne a Crest in several generations, House Galatea has been more fortunate. However, the family has recently fallen on hard times, and the current Count Galatea seeks to marry off the sole Crest bearer of the family, his daughter Ingrid, to replenish its coffers.
