A Reign of Toads
House Civia claims to be an exiled Westerosi House from Dorne (though this lineage is doubtful). They also equally doubtfully claim to have invented the game of Cyvasse. What is true, and quite impressive, is their dedication to toymaking, especially the manufacture of board games, of which, Cyvasse is admittedly a staple. The family has some matrilineal roots in Volantis which explains away the sailor’s tale that cyvasse is a game from Volantis.
They belong to no Myrish Trading Cartel, but have close ties with the Court of Eyes, Archon’s Palace and Great Pavilion. They also style themselves in Westerosi fashion, referring to Lords and Ladies, and holding yearly tourneys for exile knights.
