The Neral dynasty began sometime in late M38, shortly after the Anglevian Crusade was ended. For deeds long forgotten, the founder of the Neral dynasty is only remembered now as “Therese Neral”, and it is unknown to this day what gender the Founder was, let alone any details of their deeds or life.
Chartering the Warrant
The Founder was granted a Lathe-class Monitor Cruiser of good pedigree and a Warrant requiring intervention to increase the boundaries of the newborn Calixis Sector.
Rise of a Dynasty
It remained a small, but profitable dynasty until the days of Vedran Neral in mid M39. Vedran single-handedly assimilated several smaller noble families and Chartist Captains into the fold, and the Dynasty became a political force to be reckoned with in the outer subsectors of Sector Calixis. This golden age of exploration, exploitation and extermination ended later in M39 when Reginald Neral went into the Koronus Expanse with a colony fleet and a so-called “treasure map”… never to be seen or heard from again.
Fall of a Dynasty
Reginald Neral, claiming to have found proof of an ancient treasure, took much of the Neral Dynasty fleet into the Koronus Expanse in search of treasure. Over the next couple centuries, it became clear that Reginald Neral was lost to the Expanse. Driven to madness, his eldest son, Sarvus Neral, drove the last flagship of the Dynasty into a star, and his bloodline (including Isaak Neral, the next-in-line to the Dynasty’s leadership) became persona-non-grata in the Dynasty.
In desperation, the Dynasty turned to it’s outcast sons to take up the banner and last true ship of the Dynasty to reclaim what has been lost.
Isaak Neral took command of the Dynasty immediately after Tiberius “Bronson” Neral had an untimely death, and remains among the last sons of the Dynasty. Through some wonderful opportunity, and truely the smiling of the God Emperor, the Dynasty has flourished in the Expanse. In a few short months, the Dynasty has amassed gelt and respect from the Powers that Be in Footfall, and have discovered the long-lost treasure ship from the Anglevian Crusade, the Righteous Path, and looted its treasure. They now answer a call for aid by Damaris, a flourishing, imperial-aligned colony on the brink of doom. After taking control of the situation, they even now prepare for the defense of Damaris.
