Among the chief advantages of House Xoletsa is its utter obscurity to the other houses.
Built on knowledge and sacrament, Xoletsa is situated far from the galactic center. Their original outpost was tasked with the maintenance of several extensive libraries and thus the house began its admiration of wisdom. Overtime this admiration turned to worship and with it the rise of a form of religion. The populace had good reason to worship as the advent of this religion brought forth old rituals buried deep within the libraries. Out of these rituals, new biotech was created which allowed a new intensity of self-improvement. Additionally, these rituals had the unintended effect of linking the minds of those who perform them. This gives House Xoletsa untold benefits over its opposing houses. Its opaqueness is its shield; its devotion, a blade.
The Baroness of Xoletsa understands this benefit better than most. As the head of the house and religion she can dominate the will of her subjects. She acts as a rudder, directing the power and madness of the house against those who dare contemplate interference. Even though she has control over her subjects, she only employs a select few impressive individuals and rarely meddles in mundane, supervisory affairs. Now, the Baroness stares on the Void. Its mystery has a natural pull on the curious and power-hungry within Xolesta and the Baroness is keen on meeting those desires in full.
