House Lunastre is one of the largest and most influential of the nightborne noble houses based in Suramar City. Powerful and aristocratic in a society that values both qualities, the Lunastres remain one of the guiding factions among the shal'dorei, and are currently under the stewardship of Lady Ly'leth Lunastre.
House Lunastre is based from the Lunastre Estate, on the western upper levels of Suramar. This is in contrast to the other noble houses, who generally reside in the eastern half of the city proper, and highlights the Lunastres' less haughty attitude among their brethren. There exists a large number of servants and other agents continuously in the employ of House Lunastre, who show unflinching loyalty toward their patrons.
While House Lunastre held prominence since at least one generation beforehand, the faction's true significance arose at the time of the Nightfallen rebellion. Having succeeded her late (and possibly assassinated) father as leader of the house, Ly'leth Lunastre secretly allied her family with the fledgling Nightfallen rebels against Grand Magistrix Elisande. Throughout the coming conflict, the resources of House Lunastre would play a major role furthering the rebel cause, and would allow them to gain a foothold in Suramar City.
House Lunastre, along with its allied houses, would eventually contest an opening for the position of advisor to the Grand Magistrix; Ly'leth herself would eventually succeed to the position, continuing to work covertly for the Nightfallen cause from within the Nighthold itself. Towards the conclusion of the civil war, Ly'leth and her family's loyalties would be discovered, leading to her imprisonment. She would ultimately be freed when the Nighthold fell to the insurgents.
Following the Nightfallen rebellion, Ly'leth (and by extension House Lunastre) held increased influence as part of Suramar's new government led by First Arcanist Thalyssra. Though the rebellion had caused some rifts within the family, the house was once again fully united in its aftermath. They would subsequently join the Horde along with the rest of the nightborne of Suramar some time before the beginning of the Blood War.
