White Court
This article is for the White Court House. For other uses, see Raith.

House Raith is one of the White Court houses, and is considered the most powerful.

DescriptionEdit

White Court vampires feed off of emotional energies, and the favored energy of Raith vampires is sexual desire, although some, such as Madrigal Raith, have deviated from that line. Lord Raith[1] and Lara Raith[2] are its leaders.

The Hunger fuels their power, strength and near immortality—they are born with it.[3] The first feeding of a vampire is always lethal.[3] Panic and trauma can act like a trigger to set off the Hunger on a young that hasn't yet transformed.[3] The vampires of House Raith are similar to the folklore figures, the succubi and incubi.[4]

Kissing someone still touched by love or touching an object representative of true love such as a ring can leave the lips or skin of a White Court vampire burned and flaky.[3]

They use misdirection, seduction, and manipulation. Like all White Court houses, they prefer to use others as instruments to obtain their goals—in a procedure called Cat's Paw.[3]

They speak Ancient Etruscan.[5]

HistoryEdit

House Raith was led by Lord Raith, until Lara Raith enthralled him in Blood Rites.[6]

The children of the House grow up like any other human kid not knowing anything about what they are. Lord Raith does not allow anyone to tell them or they will be killed.[3]

There is a brief mention of at least five Raith women, presumably Lord Raith's daughters, were in attendace at the White Court conclave in which Harry Dresden and Carlos Ramirez challenged Madrigal Raith and Vittorio Malvora to a duel.[7]
