House Carteret was one of the less powerful in the Alsind Imperium, but they volunteered to lead the expedition to the island of Halla and colonize it, in hopes to find something to increase their gravitas.
In 822, they traveled across the Sea of Creaux and formed the colony of Jelsina. Halla proved to be lackluster, and did not contain anything to be monopolized, to the Carteret’s dismay. The Alsind recieved word of the mediocrity, and not wanting to waste any more time, banished the Carteret’s from their land. With nowhere else to go, the family decided they would make the most of what they had, forming the Kingdom of Faline. They made contact with the native Dwarves and Elves, and peacefully exchanged goods for the next 180 years.
In the in the final months of the First Undead War, the last surviving members were systematically assassinated by members of Mana Hinengaro, save for a 13 year old girl, Lucidia. She was the daughter of the King and Queen, and after the war finally ended, she was officially coronated as they new ruler of Faline.
