One of the Five Families, the Orescieu are unique in that they have been known to bestow their family name and holdings onto esteemed persons that are not born into their family. The Orescieu keep to themselves, staying within their vast estate at the City of Ice. Those Orescieu encountered outside their home city are loathe to discuss family life. The given name of the Orescieu oligarch is unknown; he (or she) is referred to by their number as “Patriarch” or “Master”. Their colours are black and purple.
