    Family Summary:
    House Nordhjem, formed now of members that once made the ranks of House Viduggla, House Nordhjem av Risøyhamm is the formation of Grand Duchess Tuija Nordhjem’s splitting from their previous house, to form a more refined household, the Matriarch taking from both her Velheim roots and her interest in Imperial culture and beliefs to bring further diversity and refinement to her Duchy and the way she intends to govern. Though many of the family have various different roots, some cousins being solely Velheim, and some Imperialized, it is rare that these differences are viewed within the household due to their outgoing upbringings, as the Velheim welcome most, if not all individuals regardless of culture or faith.
    Currently, the family resides in the Region of Vikofoten, basing themselves in the province of Risøyhamm, a larger province within their control, allowing them open access to the North Regal Sea and the Orsk Sea, two potential trade routes, weather permitting passage through the Frozen Flats, though also allowing access through the Drixefjords. House Nordhjem believes that the sea is where they belong, traveling from place to place in search of past civilizations in order to restore and refine them.

    The fjord is located between the Sortland and Risøyhamm provinces. This area is usually covered in snow and in some areas the water is completely frozen over, making it difficult during some seasons for ships to dock.

    Family Biology:
    The majority of the members of House Nordhjem are Velheim with some form of Imperial beleifs, though they are often raised in the far North, where the Velheim are far more prominent than any Imperial influence, the family has found that through acceptance and expanding horizons, the family would become a beacon of cultural celebration. Some older individuals within the family still maintain purer roots, some being purely Velheim, though the majority are now a melting pot of the two cultures.

    Concerning shared features, many of the members of House Nordhjem have brown hair, a trait passed down from their previous household and one that does not seem to be going anywhere. Other than that, their heights vary drastically, due to the mixing of two different cultures and the takeaway from their respective parents. Often enough though, the men remain close to the six feet, two inches mark, where women remain around five feet, seven inches, allowing a relatively large coverage of height between both genders.

    The Nordhjem family usually carries darker hair with green or blue eyes. Pale skin is also noticeable but usually turns warmer tones once journeying to Regalia or other warmer regions. Men usually have strong features and the same with women usually in the nose or brow area.

    IGN: King_Sylar

    Preferred Character: Mikael Nordhjem av Upplanda (If it’s ok, could Mikael be exchanged for Soren? Mainly because I would want my main character to roleplay as a noble)

    Character concept: A skilled fighter in glaive and unarmed combat, many find it surprising that Mikael is a good mannered and law-abiding fellow. Polite to all, in private and public, he upholds his family’s honour with reverence. At 6’2 with an athletic body and smoothly sculpted face, he gets looks from the local markets where he visits often. Mikael makes it a point to know how to cook should he need to sustain himself without servants. He is not very outspoken, but can maintain conversation if needs be, with difficulty of course. At two ends of the spectrum he is either found in the Regalian Library with his nose furrowed and buried deep into the crevice of a book, or in the Arenacourt, perspiring due to his lucid movements and agility. As the oldest of his siblings, he cares for them and is overprotective. Overall, a friendly representative of the House. Recently he has taken a liking to collecting antiques and items of histrocial value.

    RP Weaknesses: Political Roleplay, though willing to give it a try.

    RP Strengths: Combat Roleplay. A bit of lore Roleplay.

    Player References: @CritThis , @RaggedyGrace

    Reason for Applying: I want to spice up the noble RP with a bit more interaction with commoners. On the other hand I would love to coincide with the royalty too. In Regalia, I am seeking diversity in activities between social classes, and becoming a noble is, in my opinion, the best way to do it. Also, new House pog.

    IGN: Papi_Pollo
    Preferred Character: Ellisif Nordhjem av Hylgeberge
    Character Concept: A simple shield woman who admires writing, hunting, horse riding and cooking. Simple and sweet. Enjoys socializing full-heartedly as well as combat events once in awhile.
    RP Weaknesses:Probably Political rp. Never done it before on massivecraft though have experience on different platforms.
    RP Strengths: Event-planning rp, CRP
    ⤜ Player References: I suppose members of the Cadieux family and my friend ChapterDeath
    Reason for Applying: I think it’d be nice to roleplay as a noble to interact with my friends within that rp scene without roleplaying another of those “I want to be in noble scene pls” commoners as Lhoris. This family also looks unique and interesting as a try for my first noble rp.

    IGN: LeonIsLame
    Preferred Character: Mikael Nordhjem av Upplanda
    Character Concept: Mikael is a seafarer through and through, having spent a large chunk of his life away from his family travelling foreign lands. He is often loud and likes to joke around, even if people don’t share his sense of humor.
    The young man loves telling people stories of his travels and places that he’s been too, often exaggerating in his descriptions. One of the more Imperial members of the family, he has also developed a large interest in fashion, being almost never seen without some form of his signature white fur.
    Mikael is quite curious, though he much prefers travelling and talking to people than reading about things in a dark room.
    RP Weaknesses: I struggle in larger social settings, which I of course want to try and change by participating in and perhaps organizing more events, and by playing a more extroverted character.
    RP Strengths: I fare pretty well in CRP, political roleplay and while roleplaying with smaller groups.
    Player References: @Simslp , @FutureTeller
    Reason for Applying: I have been a bit absent from Massive in the last couple months, and I miss noble roleplay especially. I really like Velheim and Imperial culture, and I haven’t had the chance to make a character of either of those yet. I’m also hoping to maybe find some new people to roleplay with outside of my typical friend group.
