History

Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

At the time of the Nightfallen rebellion in Suramar City, House Stelleris was led by Lord Coryn and wielded significant power in and around the city's Noble District. Unlike the more sympathetic House Lunastre, members of House Stelleris displayed all the haughtiness and disdain commonplace among nightborne nobility.

As the conflict escalated, the position of advisor to Grand Magistrix Elisande became available for aspiring members of the aristocracy, who scrambled to claim the honor. Lord Coryn Stelleris quickly became one of the chief contenders, and fought viciously against Lady Ly'leth Lunastre for the title. Though House Stelleris attempted to coerce House Astravar into supporting their bid by kidnapping Ailen Astravar, this plan failed with the intervention of Ly'leth's allies.[1]

Ruven, a close friend of Coryn and head of House Duskmere, would soon be killed by Nightfallen rebel agents (who Ly'leth was secretly in league with); rumors were soon spread by opponents of House Stelleris that Coryn was responsible for the murder. These events would lead to House Duskmere turning against Coryn and House Stelleris, whose reputation was ruined by the incident. Ly'leth would subsequently win election to the position and travel to the Sanctum of Order to accept the appointment.[2]

Despite the setbacks, Coryn refused to concede defeat and would confront Ly'leth personally within the Sanctum of Order, challenging her to Tal'ashar for the title. In the ensuing duel between Coryn and Ly'leth's chosen champion, Coryn would be slain. Now unopposed, Ly'leth claimed the position of advisor.[3]

Even after Ly'leth Lunastre's victory in the election, House Stelleris continued to harass her allies and attempt to disrupt her support base, specifically hiring masked thugs to this end.[4] With the help of her allies in the Nightfallen, Ly'leth would succeed in rooting out and putting a stop to these attacks.
