[[WMG: The Golden Lands were originally the exclusive domain of the House of Rocks]]
If you look at [[https://web.archive.org/web/20160823010651/http://kamsha.ru/books/eterna/illustr/misc/Kertiana.jpg the map]], there are four ([[ArcNumber naturally]]) major known landmasses in Kertiana: the Golden Lands where Talig is located, the Vermilion Lands ruled by the Morisk shads to the south-west, the Grey(-haired) Lands to the North (barely populated due to climate change), and the Turquoise Lands in the East (also depopulated). Now, let us recall that this color-coding is extremely similar to the four inner planets of Kertiana's star system: the innermost Litten is golden-colored, Evrot is silvery-grey, Naier is bright blue, and Fulgat is blood-red/vermillion. Furthermore, each star is associated with one of the four old Abveniate gods (Lit, Anem, Und, and Astrap, respectively), letting us conclude that this was originally their color-coding.

In other words, we have four color-coded creator gods and four major landmasses color-coded in essentially the same way, so it stands to reason that originally, each old god had created an entire continent for himself and his descendants (remember that Kertiana was originally a sort of vacation resort for four particular Guardians of Sunset). Over the millenia since the old gods' last visit, however, the world has fallen into disrepair, and both Und and Anem's lands have become uninhabitable by humans, while Astrap's direct descendants, the House of Lightning, were pushed off the Vermilion Lands (themselves barely inhabitable due to desertification) into the Golden Lands (Lit's original domain). At some point thereafter, the Rakans appeared out of nowhere and united the four Great Houses under their rule into the Golden Anaxia, dividing the Rocks' ancestral lands among them.

[[folder: Alvas' family motto has a double meaning]]
When paired with a soaring crow, the motto "Against the Wind" invokes a romantic struggle against overwhelming odds. However, on its own, it is also reminiscent of the idiom "pissing against the wind" (meaning "doing unnecessary tedious things")--knowing the {{Deadpan Snarker}}s that are Alvas, as well as a little bit of their family history, both interpretations are probably valid.
