The Zenvibrok family, a small group of survivors, joined with others to take advantage of the ripe farm lands left open after many years of civil war. The house's focus at first was on its' Thoroughbred breeding and Beautiful gardens. But over generations, the Zenvibrok estate grew into Fides. A flourishing center of trade and crafting, connecting the outlying lands. Thus advancing the Zenvibrok family into nobility. The 'House of Zen', which the family has become known as, created the intercity network for what is now Sancus, a county of lush plains and large open spaces.
