The Snow Dynasty was the royal family of that ruled the Snow Empire. It began with Snow Yue-Han, who took control of the Chela collective in Geran year 1349, and ended with the death of King Vega Lukisu Fyuri, killed in 1800. Rule was originally passed from father to eldest son, and to the king's oldest brother if there were no sons. The ascension of Queen Emira in 1494, however, established that the throne could be claimed by the King's eldest daughter if there were no eligible sons or brothers. Though relatives of the Snow Dynasty are still alive, there are no remaining members of the male line and King Fyuri never had children. As a result, the 450-year-old dynasty is considered extinguished.

She claimed that her late husband, Nin Dinamo, was the great-great-grandson of Snow Karu, a daughter of Queen Rugen. Snow Hehi, she claimed, survived the massacre carried out by her uncle, King Lonsank, but was so traumatized that she fled the Royal Palace, changing her name and marrying a noble.
