As the Empire grew and the Emperor was forced to deal with more Lords, he entrusted his blood brother to rule the most vital region of Tornian, the Etruria Region. It was an area of the planet rich in mineral resources that were vital for the Empire.
When Emperor Lucan Berto was convicted of abusing his young females, his family was stripped of their right to rule and Lord Wyck Vasteri of the Planet Luda was proclaimed Emperor of the Tornian Empire.
The new Emperor, in an attempt to calm the chaos that had been created by Lucan's actions and to reassure his people that the Empire would continue, moved his family from Luda to Tornian, maintaining House Torino as the 'Emperors' House but naming a new Lord to rule the Etruria Region. He also proclaimed his own blood brother 'King' of Luda, ruler of House Luanda, making him next in line to rule the Tornian Empire if his offspring were not to survive.
