House Haven participated in the assassination attempt of King Maven Calore organized by House Samos with the help of Houses Laris and Iral. The attempt failed, and they used their ability to turn invisible and escape Archeon, though some were captured and killed. House Haven and House Iral initially refused to bow to House Samos when they formed the Kingdom of the Rift, though they later do.
House Haven was split during the Nortan Civil War. The Lord of House Haven, Jerald Haven, and others supported the Kingdom of the Rift. However, the majority of the family stayed loyal to Maven.
It is common for members of House Haven to have red hair and blue eyes.
Members of House Haven are shadows and thus can bend light to hide themselves and other things.
