Vast portion of the Houses wealth comes from satrapies. Recently, some Cathak House holds have started hiring out their legions to other Houses’s satapies. Cathak Cainan despises the practice, but knows his house needs the money.


The House squeezes the most from their satrapies, but also provide better troops and less corrupt officials. More satrapies have been with holding tribute, hoping the impending civil war will keep the House occupied. Should war be overted House Cathak would make sure that the satrapies would be put in line with strong legion presence.
