KLINGON HOUSES: TUQ QIMAT, HOUSE OF KEMAT.
(House of Kemat)
The ancient Klingon proverb, "qaStaHvsIS wa'ram
loS SaD Hugh SljlaH qetboqh loD"
(Four thousand throats may be cut in one night by a running man.), is based
on a true story.
House of Kemat, tuq qimat, is an exceedingly old and honorable house which
can trace its lineage back to the time of Kahless. Going back to the legends
of old, where the founder of the house, qimat, IS the running man who killed
four thousand that glorious night.
Unfortunately over the centuries this great house has seen its decline. Two
hundred years ago the old saying "jeghbe` thlInganpu" (Klingons do not surrender.)
was put to the test when members successfully prevented an attempt to over
throw and murder the Emperor. Most of the house died that day.
In 2293, Brawnour, the last blood survivor of tuq qimat, was rescued
from the aftermath of Praxis by a human. She later conceived a child, producing
the heir to the house. She named him after the human who rescued her, Nouri.
The current house head is qimat Puq'LoD Nouri, Kemat son of Nouri.
Current House Leader:
The current leader of tuq qimat is qimat aj also
known as "qimat Puq'LoD Nouri" (Kemat, son of Nouri). He is named
after the ancient founder of the house. It is unknown if he can restore the
grandeur of his ancient house. What is certain is that he, his house and
his allies will fight to the death to eliminate those who oppose an honorable
way of life and bring harm to the Klingon Empire. It is rumored that qimat
is assisted by the ghosts of his assassinated father and the founder of his
House Honor Pledge:
batlh pothl law` yIn pothl puS
(Honor is more important than life.)
qaStaHvsIS wa'ram loS SaD Hugh SljlaH qetboqh loD
(Four thousand throats may be cut in one night by a running man.)
Shown as above. It is a mailed, almost completed,
fist. Four fingers down represent the four thousand cut down. One thumb up
to represent the Klingon, qimat (Kemat), who saved the battle and killed
the four thousand. The act of almost clenching the fist holding the symbol
of the Klingon Empire is to show tuq qimat embracing the good and crushing
out impurities in the Empire.
