These are magical lineages of humans, ‘touched’ by outer forces at some point in their history. They are rare, but often picked up by Orders, especially the Silver Ladder, and cultivated – as legend says members are more likely to Awaken. Generally they’re found serving the Orders as enlightened servants, respected – but serviant.
There aren’t many well known, described examples of Lineages, due to Orders jealously guarding their familes from Seers, and other Orders. Rumours escalate of families with ancestral sea-gods, shades of the dead, dream-things and even from Christ.
Families often to get lost as well, upheaval in some countries make it impossible for an Order to keep a given family, or just lose track of it’s members in the chaos. Heresay also whispers that some Seers have Proximi families of their own – the most infamous is the one reportedly owned by the Praetorian Ministry, which is a collection of fiercely loyal soldiers.
