What are Klingon Family Lines?
The Klingon Empire is composed of hundreds of family lines,
commonly referred to as Houses. A family line may be considered
as a Major or Minor House depending on its size, wealth and political
influences within the Klingon Empire.
A family line is not necessarily composed entirely of blood
relations; if a line is open, it will occasionally adopt new
members if they have skills, contacts or material goods that
will bring honour, fame or fortune to the House. While the customs
for ratification vary from line to line, generally any family
member can sponsor another individual for adoption into his house
line. According to certain sources within the Empire, if the
newcomer is exceptionally ambitious, the offering of handsome
gifts, donations and/or bribes when requesting adoption with
a line could offer many extra benefits in return.
Why join a Klingon Family Line?
The average Klingon hopes to gain advantages from alliance
with a family line (see The Kasara Alliance),
not the least of which is protection. In this context, protection
ranges from the money to buy off potential enemies (both inside
and outside the Empire) to the provision of trustworthy bodyguards
for those in higher command positions. In addition, the individual
benefits from the reputation and social status of his new family.
The individual line member must contribute to the welfare of
the House with their loyalty and defense in the cause of the
Benefits of Joining House Kasara
The House of Kasara is unusual in that it is a matriarchal
line. It seeks to embrace the ideals of the Grand Alliance and
believes that all races and species have their own strengths
House Kasara is an open, extended family line with a composition
of 35% Klingon-Human Fusion, 40% Imperial Klingon, 20% Klingon-Romulan
Fusion and 5% Other (Human, Vulcan, etc.). It is therefore much
more open to the possibility of admitting potential members who
are not of pure "Imperial Klingon" blood.
The line is estimated to have between 30,000 to 35,000 members
throughout the Empire with approximately 40+ members (as well
as another 100+ Kasara Alliance "relatives") located
It welcomes new members, particularly females, who have intelligence,
skill, strength, loyalty and are willing to bring honour to the
Membership within the House of Kasara brings with it much
honour and respect within the Empire. It will bring many opportunities,
from meeting other people with similar interests in both Star
Trek and Klingon culture.
After a probationary period, members who have contributed
in some manner to the honour of the House, may also be eligible
to receive their own private email address, such as <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
