|The Vist Family|
Summer of 2011
Auel Logan Vist
The Vist Family is one of the oldest standing families in the Graal Military Community, having possessed roots in the Royal Guard and Imperia, two predecessors of the modern military community. It is considered to be one of the few families to second the Line of Auel in prestige, having been the first ruling family of Imperia, and a former ruling family of The State. However, it was not until early State that the Vist name was transitioned into a family, and members were introduced into it.
Auel Vist's Reign
Under Auel Vist's reign, the Vist Family gained many members, all of which were prominent militants and allies of his. The first member to be inducted was Pierce Bowen, a State General and cousin of Auel Vist. Bruce, later known as Roanoke Han, would then befriend Auel and took on the Vist name after he'd been given an alternate account of Auel's. Throughout the rest of his reign, Auel would introduce Auel Logan, Savus, Leon Fessler, and Xeno (Not to be confused with Xenophone) into the Vist Family.
In 2016, Auel would play an instrumental role in formulating the Kingdom system, eventually choosing the Vist name to represent his house instead of Auel. Minor houses such as House Vaiken under Tyrell would flock under House Vist, which would serve as their overlord house. At the time, the symbol of House Vist was depicted as that of a tree with a variety of branches, hence the house's motto, "One Tree, Many Branches". However, unbeknownst to Auel Vist, he would lose the High King elections to Auel Vulnus. This caused Auel to go inactive, which would by proxy lead to the demise of House Vist, and the Kingdom when Vulnus abdicated the throne to him.
Upon Auel Vist's retirement, Auel Logan would inherit all of his assets, and be granted total ownership of the Vist Family, along with the Line of Auel and his guilds.
Auel Logan's Reign
It was under Auel Logan's reign that a new generation of Vists would be established, and the Vist Family would see new faces, among them James Kazakov in 2020, a long-time State loyalist.
When JJ Arçanüm was promoted to General of The Unified State following Auel Kusan's retirement, he requested the Vist name in order to gain further authority in the State. It was around this time that the Vist Family would be assigned the ruling family of the State, though this only lasted the duration of this specific iteration.
In 2022, Auel Logan ennobled the Vist Family in the Auro-State Empire and made JJ the lord of House Vist. However, Vist did not remain a noble family due to the riddance of nobility, following State's secession and declaration of independence from the union.
