House Anokeen of Ceyx was one of the most influential noble houses in the Temennu Empire. Their near monopoly on the production of antimatter gave them a leverage over space trade and even the Imperial Space Fleet. This ultimately proved fatal, other houses were eager to plot against them and the Empress herself could not suffer any restrictions to be placed on her glorious fleet. When Duke List Anokeen spoke out against the invasion of Merope he sealed the fate of his house. He found himself suddenly without friends or allies. Rather than wait for the inevitable he went rogue with all of his household. The Old Duke died two years later when he was set up by his former supporters and friends and lured back to the Alcyone system. House Anokeen is now ruled by his daughter born in exile Pari Anokeen. She and her rogue house have been holding out in their battlecruiser the Chariot somewhere in the barbarian systems for the past two decades.
