House Alister was a High House of The Empire, and governors of Water’s Edge. After the siege of Alister Castle was broken, despite the efforts of Alister bannermen, the remaining Alisters were captured and put to the sword by forces loyal to Haren Greenstag, a contender to the throne from the Lower House of Greenstag.
One of the earliest pretenders to the imperial title, House Alister was involved early in the War of the Throne. After winning several decisive victories against other High Houses in the east, House Alister’s forces were spread then and unable to make decisive moves into the center of the Empire. Cut off from the breadbasket of the Empire and suffering many setbacks, House Alister began to suffer and lose the confidence of their subjects. Eventually, despite the bravery of its remaining loyal troops, several relatively small forces were able to destroy the House.
The last lord of House Alister was Jamen Alister.
