The Sermerian First House was the noble body that ruled Sermeria from its capital city of Addolis during the time of the Galactic Republic. Ister Paddie was a noble of the House before going to Coruscant to represent his people in the Galactic Senate. As befitted a noble of the House, Paddie wore golden robes and the orthodox Halbara hairstyle.
Circa 22 BBY, the House and its president, Dibra Born, received a suspicious package and the government was forced to shut down for several hours until a bomb squad and the Sermerian Bio-League contained the threat.
