The White Star is a Nautical Themed household in Caid that represents a merchanteer ship and its associations. The household is divided into two parts The Ship and The Villa.

Our Villa, residing in Cadiz, Spain serves as the port for the Good Ship White Star and a refuge for those seeking a life of leisure and art. The 'official' time line of the household sets us in the early 1500's, where we stand as defenders against persecution and an 'underground railroad' to help those who suffer under the yoke of the Spanish Inquisition.

The household is comprised of individuals who thrive on persona-play and enjoy The Game of the SCA as well as each others company and the activities which we do.

The White Star was formed in 1998, in (the, then Principality of) Northshield, when Dianora Lizavetta di Vittori di Cellini granted Lot Ramirez the rank of Captain and the White Star as an advance on the dowry of her ward, Caterina di Cellini. The household of the White Star maintains its connections as a part of the di Cellini households, which span more than 3 kingdoms.
