    House of Vista

    Post by Jayzaku Vista on Fri Jun 14, 2013 9:05 pm

    House of Vista


    The House of Vista, also known as the "Vista Family", is an illustrious, highly influential, and powerful family that has helped lead the Fiore Royal Military for nearly 400 years. The family is known for its' legendary members and almost all supreme leaders of the Fiore Military in the last 300 years ago have hailed from this family. A defining trait of this family is that many of its' descendants are born with a high aptitude for the magical arts and abnormally strong magical power. They are the most respected noble family among the commoners of Fiore, due to their charity and philosophy of treating all equally. The Vista family stands as one of the greatest noble families in the Kingdom of Fiore.


    History: The history of the Vista family is littered with brilliance-- legendary mages, heroes etc. Their history goes back over 400 years ago when they were first brought to fame by their first true head, Soran Vista. The Vistas rise to fame took place during the great magical world where Soran Vista was one of the leading military officers. After the war had ended Soran was now a hero among the people. He shortly after found a wife and they had 5 kids. And Soran first son Kelsin went on to establish the new military under Fiore's new empire and thus made the Vistas warriors and businessmen. And so the story of the Vistas began.



    Influence:Fame, Wealth, Power -- this family has all this and more. The House of Vista stands at the top as one of the most powerful families in both Fiore and the world. This family, due to having helped lead the Fiore Military for nearly 400 years, they have the respect of the Empire of Fiore and the whole continent as well.  It is said the Military owes its' strength to the Vista family that made it that way. The Vista house has close ties with the Royal family as well, Jayzaku is friends with the Princess, Aina. A testament to this family's influence can be seen over 30 years ago when major impoverished areas of Northern Fiore were all rebuilt at no cost to those who lived there, but on the government's bill, since the House of Vista requested the long awaited rebuilding to be done. A person who is part of this family can go anywhere and find favor, many nobles themselves marvel at the power of the House of Vista. Of course, there are drawbacks to the fame this name carries and it can get in the way of thing. Furthermore, as a result of their philosophy of tolerance, the family has its' share of political enemies.




    It is important to understand that much of the privileges enjoyed by the members of the family are owed to their predecessors. Aside from making strides in the world of magic, many great Vista men and women have been powerful businessmen, doctors, government officials, and even accomplished architects. Thus, they have accomplished great feats in civil areas of society and made vast amounts of money in altogether conventional ways in the past. In addition, as a result of the things they've done have left many in their debt; in turn, would pay off in the long run. This is not to say Vista have not had their own screw ups, but have managed to keep themselves in line for the most part.




    The Vista are a very public and outgoing family; not ones to hide within the confines of their palatial estates. They are the ones who are out there doing things, big and small. From volunteer work to holding public charity events on the lawns of the Vista Manor, they are a rather open family. Though Jayzaku finds it can be very annoying at times as people can take advantage of their charity, something he had fell victim to as a teenager. Regardless of the perks, the name comes with much expected of it. This can lead to alot of pressure put on the shoulders of the young Vista members. Furthermore, you are expected to be notable in some capacity and have a heart of gold as the Vista are known for their generosity and closeness to the common people despite their lofty social standing.




    The Vista hold a powerful presence in the business world, dabbling for over two centuries in a smorgasbord of different corporate endeavors from real estate to investment banking to hospitality to trade and beyond. As stated before, there have been a number of exceptional businessmen and women among this family. As a result, it is expected that any member is decently versed in the ways of the corporate world. From age 12, Jayzaku was tutored in these matters along with Economics, the same was done for Ishimaru. The Vista have a number of holdings in the hospitality industry such as coastal resorts and the like. All such business outside of Fiore is handled by the Head of External Affairs. By the same token, all such business with in the country is handled by the Head of Internal Affairs. The Head of the family presides over this with the final say in crucial issues. One of the most prominent business heavyweights in the Vista's history was Baraxia Vista, who was also a skilled mage and lauded poet of impeccable beauty. She would go on to be the first and only Head of the Vista, keeping her maiden name even after marriage.




    Traditions: Whenever the presiding Head, or direct successor, and his wife bring their first son into the world , a large ceremony is held. Dozens of friends, family, and associates of the Vista family are invited to bear witness. Said ceremony is held for the first born son; the first born son alone. The purpose is to introduce the primary heir of the family to society; cement the child's place as the potential future head of the House of Vista. The ceremony is always held at Vista manor and is a nearly monumental event among Fiore's high society. This is a tradition that dates back more then 200 or so years.



    Family Manor: The Vista family resides at the Vista Manor usually, and the former head usually retires to a Villa in the mountains. This home is like a palace, and is a testament to the wealth of this family. Jayzaku once commented to a friend as a teenager that he didn't find the Royal Palace exceptionally impressive due to growing up in the Vista manor. The Vista mansion sits on grounds so vast that Jayzaku's parents have their own river flowing past their private chambers. The frontal portion of the house is purely western in design, inside and out, further along the way, the manor branches out into a eastern style design while the interior is still European in design and layout. This odd layout and more or less mashing together of two very different architectural styles can be attributed to the preceding generations who could not settle on just one style while originally expanding the home. The home has a number of courtyards with small ponds and gardens, however, they have less served as places for relaxation and more as places for sparring. When the grounds are first entered, there is a large lake filled with Koi of impeccable pedigree that have been raised in that very lake for generations. The Koi are rare, and about four times larger than common variety and are of a brilliant gold hue.




    The Manor is protected by an incredibly powerful barrier set up by runes, making it a haven from destruction if need be. Originally, Soran had set up a high level detection barrier over the original estate. This was kept as that for decades. However, this changed. In favor of insuring the protection of the home in possible times of peril, Neyo's father, a master in such magic, set up a complex and rather intricate barrier. One of the features is that the barrier effectively shuts out anyone with hostile intent. The barrier can only be undone by the sitting Head of the family via a key passed down from generation to generation. So far, only the three most recent generations have been in this cycle so far. According to Jayzaku, the barrier is called the "Giga Sphere". It is a closely guarded spell of the family, much akin to the Vista Secret Arts.
