House Aeaea was among the most unique Noble Houses in the empire. For one, while the title of Archon was passed down via bloodline, the hierarchy of House Aeaea was purely matriarchal, allowing only female heirs to take the position of Archon. The other was a strange practice developed by the nobility of the house. Aeaea had a strange interest in the science of ‘quantum psionics’, a largely debunked scientific theory that enough focus of mental willpower would allow one to manipulate the energies of the Metaverse to one’s will. Only women were taught the ways of quantum psionics, often forming ‘Circles’ made up of dozens of practitioners in order to focus enough energies to manipulate the Metaverse even slightly. So slightly, in fact, that it was impossible to tell if the events Aeaea claimed to cause were the results of their weirding ways or mere chance.
While some saw this practice as a sort of quasi-religious tradition of Aeaea at best, most scientific minds saw quantum psionics as a crackpot theory and idiotic mysticism.
Years before the start of the Illion War, House Aeaea was lost to the Galactic Empire when their capital world of Colchis Prime vanished from the stars. There are many legends surrounding what truly happened to House Aeaea and their homeworld, and more seem to appear every day after the arrival of the Black Ships.
