House Minerva is one of the houses in the Institute. During Darrow's year at the Institute, House Minerva was lured by Darrow into defeating Titus and his faction of House Mars. Later, House Minerva was defeated by an alliance between House Mars and House Diana, causing all but their Primus Mustang, who was allowed to go free by Darrow, to be enslaved. After Darrow's failed duel with Cassius, Mustang saved his life while she was in hiding and allied with him. Members of House Minerva are usually intelligent and scholarly.
