"It is indeed a desirable thing to be well-descended, but
the glory belongs to our ancestors."
-Plutarch (46-120AD), Greek essayist, biographer. Moralia, "On the
Training of Children" (c. 100 A.D.).
The Patrician Class is Rome's elite
aristocracy, the powerful Founding Families of Rome. For centuries Patricians governed
Rome exclusively. To be a Patrician is to view the Senate (indeed, the Consulship) as your
birthright. Your bloodline can be traced to the Senate of Romulus himself, and is steeped
in honors, culture, and tradition. Your ancestors have held high office, commanded great
armies, and installed the known world beneath the Roman boot. In reality, the Patrician
Class is Rome's old guard, a particular distinction for those who originally helped build
Rome into the great empire of which you are a part. The title is just a formal
acknowledgement of their tenure in Rome. Patricians should sew a broad purple stripe (at
least three inches wide) down the right side of their tunics to signify their rank.
Historically, Patricians also wore an iron ring, and shoes of red leather.
Patrician families are as follows: House Arthol, House Gracchus, House
Deloricus, House Ickorus, House Severus, House Tempest, House Valerius,
House Vrykolacus, and House Xirinius. Any
member whose tenure with Rome predates July 2nd, 1995 may establish a
Patrician House upon their entrance into the Senate provided they are not
already a member of an existing House.
