House Ailurus is led by the Panda Archon Mykola Void with support from the Panda Polemarch Senna Nightshade and both their Ferals — Foxx and Barbarossa the Wayfinder. The Ailurus Protectorate is under its care. The capital of the Ailurus Protectorate and thus House Ailurus is the city of Penwall.
The House is built on acceptance, understanding, camaradrie, and encouragement. As such, they strive to make a home for all who need it and offer a retreat and safe haven to those from other houses. They stress community and friendship above all else and believe in supporting each other through everything they face. If support or encouragement or even just a shoulder to cry on is needed, you can find it in House Ailurus.
House Ailurus' goal is to create a safe, welcoming, and relaxing haven for those that need it; to offer support and friendship to all and to do what they can to make the world a better life. This includes leaders and every other Tome Knight that needs the care or help.
July 2022Mykola Void began to plan and hope that she would be able to found House Ailurus during the July 2022 Tourney of Tales. Towards the end of the Tourney, Queen Siobhan surprised Mykola with the title of Duchess and a 100 acre plot of land to turn into the beginnings of Ailuridae. Thus began the planning in earnest to build and create the safe haven that she dreamed of and the settlement of Penwall. In August 2022 construction and restoration started on the settlement that previously existed on the land set aside to build Penwall. Begining with the restoration of the Temple of All Deities, Requiem Library and The Treehouse. The idea for House Ailurus comes from old texts and information Mykola found regarding an ancient literomantic house. This, of course, led to them being persecuted to a savage extent during the fall of the great houses and soon led to their extinction. The principles they were founded on were those of family and unity in community, things that resonate with Mykola to a high degree. There were two historical professions the house observed that Mykola decided bring back into being, the art of the apothocary and animal keeping. As such a portion of Ailuridae has been set aside as a wildlife rescue and reserve.
House Ailurus controls the Ailurus Protectorate, a territory that primarily encompasses what used to be known as the states of Washington and Oregon, as well as portions of Idaho. Aldergrove, British Columbia is also encompassed by this territory, although multiple surrounding areas are considered Lapin territory.
House Ailurus is a pantheistic organization which recognizes and accepts all religions and denominations so long as no harm comes to their communities. They have no one official religion, instead acknowledging all of them.
