Being a game in which the plot is entirely based on RP interactions, ImperiumNova tends to have quite the colourful cast.

of the Ascendant]]


Added DiffLines:

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: To ancient Mesopotamia. Their HQ is named the "The Ziggurat" and their AIs are named after Sumerian and Akkadian gods and heroes.
* MechaMooks: Utilize robotic drones in the place of traditional soldiers.
* [[ProudScholarRace Proud Scholar House]]: Science, technology and cybernetics are their [[PlanetOfHats Hat]], [[GameplayAndStorySegregation though they are actually not especially technologically advanced.]]
* RulingCouple: Minister Adonijah and Charlotte act as this, since Charlotte is in charge of the (extremely important to the House) Technology sphere.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: They're ''the'' House of the Ascendant, not House of the Ascendant or House Ascendant.
* {{Transhumanism}}: They're extremely fond of cybernetics, which puts them at odds with some of the other Houses.
* UnknownRival: They have a "collective chip on their shoulder" towards House Djala, but are really nowhere near them in influence, prestige or power.

'''Minister Adonijah of the Ascendant'''

* NaiveNewcomer: Not especially knowledgeable about the intricacies of Imperial politics.

'''Charlotte of the Ascendant'''

* TheSmartGuy: The House of the Ascendant's head of technology
* TheStoic

'''Levi of the Ascendant'''

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: Seems to have the same goals as Adonijah, but often makes decisions without the Minister's approval, much to his chagrin.
