House Karosas are one of the seven noble families that form the Founding Council of the Aurigan Coalition, traditional rulers of Smithon.[2]


The family had ancestral Lithuanian roots. The family was known for the strength of its academic institutions (medicine, archaeology, science, and engineering), something shown by the fact that most of the Aurigan Colaition's engineers and researchers trained in their academies.[3]

  • House Sigil: Black raven on a field of white.[3]
  • House Colors: Grey and white with navy trim.[3]
  • House Motto:
There Is No Greater Wealth Than Knowledge.[3]


The family was wiped out during the Arano Civil War leaving no obvious heirs to the titles. Lord Alexander Madeira assigned a team of researches to find any surviving family left in 3026.[3] Ema Petrauskas was appointed Planetary Governor of Smithon, including holding the Gallas council seat, at this time.[4]
