One of the leading families in Drillian Society. The Counts from this family have been royal consort several times but none in the last hundred years. The last member of the family to sit on the throne was Queen Nadia Vilmar who is infamous for abdicating the throne on 22-5-263 SKR leaving no chosen successor.
The Vilmar Citadel is at the center of the Estates. The Citadel stands on a hilltop where Lord Jostin Vilmar stood his ground and helped Chandler Cowles complete his victory during the first Drillian Civil War. The area surrounding the hill has been converted over to farmland with a channel dug to redirect the Crystal River to drain arable areas and to provide additional protection for the Citadel. There has never been any sort of Suomi presence in the Citadel or the Estates, partially because of the several churches and shrines for the Kayugan faith that are inside of the Citadel. These churches draw a steady stream of worshipers for services from the many people who populate the Estate.
The Vilmar family has always had a very traditionalist point of view on how things should be run. They are almost always one of the senior families that are consulted on matters of succession throughout Drillian. The source of the Count's wealth has always been thought to be taxes supplemented by trade. The family does not have any tradition of leaving Drillian on adventures or trade missions; their primary concerns have always been inside of the Kingdom.
The Citadel is divided up into six areas.
