The Hausen Family Members Edit
The exterior of the Hausen House is a large and impressive structure, and Victorian in design. Its land spans many acres, boasting several gardens. The House is hidden form view by a large forest, and protected from intruders by a large, stone wall.
The entrance gate is metal and Gothic in design, and the arch it is attached to is decorated with stone tracery. At each side of the gate are two massive towers with cone-shaped roofs and a circular design etched into the wall. The House itself is old and resembles the letter 'c' in shape when seen from an aerial view. Up every corner of the building is a large pillar that helps support the roof extensions. The House has two floors, the second having three large doors that lead onto a balcony with Gothic, metal railings. The roof of the House is also decorated with railing.
The Main hall is a large open spaced room with multiple rooms to the left, right of and between the staircases. The room is almost completely symmetrical. Two large staircases lead to the first floor and are connected with a balcony, and at either side of the two staircases are plain, rectangular-shaped, pillars that help to support the roof that is sloped like an arch. The walls are wood framed, similar to those in medieval times, the ceiling is indented with the seal of Fest.
Compared to the Victorian design of the main hall and exterior, the dining hall has many features typical Chinese/Japanese interior design, like tatami flooring. The entire wall to the left (Teito's left) is a shoji screen. The dining room is very mildly furnished: there is a rectangular table in the centre, and despite its large size there are only two chairs. A smaller, round table sits to the right.
The rooms are large and luxurious, each with an en-suite bathroom. The rooms also share a mix of Chinese and Japanese interior design features such as shoji screens. Large lanterns are at either side of the room.
Xing-lu's workroomEditThe workroom of Xing-lu is a rather cramped and dark room, rectangular in shape with a single window at the left, this being the only source of light aside from a small, Victorian lampshade, before a large desk. Towards the left of the desk, separated by a long curtain is a cupboard filled with dolls at an angle towards a much large cupboard at the back end of the room. At the right side of the room is a large table where lots of smaller dolls sit and next to the table a small tree that looks to have died. The walls appear to be stone, and the floor is made of wood.
|“||The misson of the 6th District's Hausen House was to assassinate those who threatened the prosperity of the empire.||”|
—Seilan, on the purpose of the Hausen House.
The Hausen House appears to have had strong links to the Raggs Family as the purpose of the 6th District Hausen House was to protect the Raggs royal family from assassination. Xing-lu, the son of head of the house, was often deployed on these missions.
During one of these missions; which was to prevent an assassination attempt on the King of Raggs's life, Castor and others arrived at the home of an enemy clansmen and the ringleader was killed. As the building was being searched, Castor heard someone singing and he followed the noise till he reached a Noel Mermaid chained up in a small tank singing sadly. After the mermaid had been freed, and her injuries tended to, Seilan noted how she had become very attached to Castor.

Death of Xing-luEdit
|“||After it was over, to save themselves from extinction, those families said they would bring the head of their true master.||”|
—Seilan, Kapitel 31.
Xingfa Hausen, however, had other plans. Xingfa organised a plan to save his son; proposing that the Noel Mermaid (a type of mermaid that can shape shift) Razette, that Xing-lu had saved a few months prior, change her face to look like Xing-lu's- and they decapitate her and give her head to the Barsburg houses instead. Razette, willing to die in Xing-lu's place, shapeshifted to look like him. However, as Xingfa drew his sword and lunged at her to kill her, Xing-lu threw himself in the way and the blow impaled him through the chest.
Xing-lu was mortally injured, and as he took his final breath, he looked up to see the God of the Hausen House, Fest, standing before him. Xing-lu died of his injuries that night, but was chosen as the new vessel for the Ghost Fest. He changed his name to Castor and moved to the Barsburg Church with Razette. His family would take Xing-lu's head to the Barsburg families, and Xingfa became head of the House once again, a position he has held ever since.
Corruption of Lady HausenEdit
|“||Lord, I will not need anything, not even this body, not even this soul, if you grant me that wish: I only want to hold my child close again.||”|
—Lady Hausen's wish to the Kor, Kapitel 32
After Xing-lu's death Lady Hausen was stricken with grief and became depressed. She locked herself in her son's room and would not leave. A Kor found her, and she bargained with it in return for her son. After having all three wishes granted, she became a Wars, and her tainted soul inhabited one of her son's dolls of her.
Her husband, Xingfa Hausen was unable to have her destroyed, as he did not want to lose a son and a wife, so he had the Wars trapped in Xing-lu's room. He fed her on those who came to the God House to find the Cursed Tickets. The story told to the authorities and the outside world was that the Lady Hausen 'disappeared' after a bout of grief-induced madness.
In chronological order:
