A Judean home is very similar regardless of whose you enter; upper or lower class. The Judean people are about practicalities and so have a standard shape of home - a large entertaining room that often sports a stepped seating area where the family dines around a low table. and a section (usually at a cornered L-shape from the living quarter) dedicated to cooking with an open fire. A bedchamber is a separate room with a raised stone platform on which the mattresses and bedclothes are placed and the richer Judaen homes have rudimentary toilets that are a small addition off the back of the house and are relegated to a stone seat with a hole, build over guttering system that sends waste into nearby stream system and down the river.

Whether a family is rich or poor does not really affect the home in which they live other then to produce slightly smaller or larger sized rooms. The very rich will have separate sleeping chambers for their children but otherwise, offspring sleep in either the bedroom or the living quarters and the parents in the other. The only other difference between the houses of the upper and lower classes is the decoration. Rich Judean homes, instead of being made solely in granite or alabaster stone will be covered in pretty mosaics and designs in tile or glass, making colourful mandalas and designs on both the floors and ceilings. Some even paint their walls to be complimentary shades.

The Jaffe family have long since failed to leave Damascus for any reasons baring the monthly meet of the Council of Elders. And even then often only the Head or his Deputy will attend - rarely both. A secluded people in the spine of mountains that spear through the Damascus desert plains, the citizens of Damascus like the peace and quiet that their life affords them. Due to their piousness and their faith, many within Damascus are harsh in their judgements of those who follow different paths and are not known for their welcoming presence. Instead, the smallest piece of gossip is reacted to with the greatest of scandalised expressions and the merchants who deliver the goods the city needs to survive every week are treated with suspicion and slanted gazes. The Jaffe family are known for their scholarly and quiet ways and they lead their city province more by example than by a firm hand. They are continuously voted back into their position of leadership through the people's belief that they are the most fairminded because of their wisdom and their faith.
