The Wickes are an old family that predates the founding of Argost. The Wickes have a distant connection to the Keswicks but despite this, they are not one of the more influential houses. They are extremely wealthy and have been for a long time. The family’s reputation has not always been sterling largely due to being outmaneuvered in the political arena or caring too little about the political arena. Currently, the family seems to be poised to be more influential than ever. The family has a long and distinguished history of service in the army. When the nobility was created, the Wickes were given domain of the area to the east that border The Wild Plains.
Gold is the house color and the house symbol is the fox.
