I was reading something someone wrote whereby they stated that the four Houses of Jurai were at war at some point. This is the first I'm hearing about this. So is this correct in the canon?

Also, don't all proper Juraians belong to one of the four Houses?

Your guess is good as anyone's, as it was expanded upon in the True Tenchi novels. However, there is a slim chance that the fleets attacking the Choushin during OVA 3 were ancient Jurain back from the brink of exile, but they were using vastly different tech.

so far out of cannon that one could almost asume it was shot out of one. the base assumption behind this is a falacy inherently adressed in cannon. the falacy being that the royal family of jurai have any power of their own other then their individual combat skills. they do not. the trees have the power and are the actual rulers the royal family is just their friends and this is why despite being proven a traitor syuzan is still considered family and royalty because the trees pick whose royalty not the family. so the family can't go to war with one another in any capacity other then personal hand to hand combat and espionage. the trees would potentially cease their backing of them entirely if they did don't you think?

 :staredog:   How / why would the Jurains cultivate intelligent super-trees if it meant all political / diplomatic matters were relegated to them, that is, something with an entirely different nervous system?

Because Jurai would be almost powerless without them, or at least not anywhere near the dominant power in the universe.

There has to be more to it than just 'oh the trees have Sith powers now' and we just do janitorial work around the base of them.

Well, the trees are also generally friendly as far as I have understood.
