House Argent was never a big House in Rouel, it was always a close knit group of middle-class families. It was only around 4 Generations ago that House Argent started becoming a bigger player. After one of the Members bought a Foundry, and put it to use churning out Steel and other common Alloys. This brought a fair ammount of money into the House which used that to expand their business into Vehicle Development and Construction, providing basic auto-mobiles for civilians, and securing a lucrative contract with the military to produce a new series of Tanks. Since then House Argent has supplied high quality Military vehicles to the Rouel Army.
