Come one, come all! The Nocterose family would like to formally invite you to the Rebirth Ceremony of Lenuta Nocterose. The festivities will begin in the evening Formal attire required. The gates were open, freely allowing any to cross the lush landscape and ornate fountain to approach the large mansion beyond. The towering mansion was composed of blackened brick with large windows that were alight with the amber warmth of lit candles within. Two attendants bordered opulent oaken doors, large and open wide, allowing view of the welcoming entryway. They greeted those that exited chariots, bowing deeply to guests who dressed in full regalia, the sounds of chatter and laughter escaping into the courtyard. Wood floors had been waxed until they were almost glass-like, covered in lavish rugs and framed by elaborately carved hallways. Wait staff lead way to the adorned doorway of the ballroom. The luxury of the foyer was nothing in comparison to the grandiose of the ballroom. The ceilings were carved and delicately painted, crowned in gold and scarlet. Tables were blanketed by silken creme, embroidered in an aurous thread, plush chair in coordinating colors awaited tired or feasting guests. Large windows made up one of the walls, broken by glass-paned doors that lead out to incredibly well-kept gardens. Platters were held aloft dexterous digits as staff circled the guests, offering expensive drink and delectable bites on gilded trays. The hour was almost at hand, the orchestra waiting patiently whilst the head of the Nocterose family stood at the base of a grand staircase, the glistening wooden steps crimson as if they were stained with blood before being sealed and glossed. A rather tall and handsome man, shoulders broad with black hair, long and tidily tied back with a red ribbon. His hands were clasped behind his back, chin held high as his sharp gaze looked upon the arriving guests with an air of royalty. This night, however, was not about him.
