I’d say that, while it’s normally up to a player to define what his character’s intimacies mean, if another character wanted to use this situation in order to pit the first character’s pro-house intimacy against his pro-Realm intimacy or vice verse, it would not be okay for the first player to argue “Ah, but the intimacy is to my House, not traitorous members within it, therefore there’s no conflict.”
That said, “There’s no conflict” would be a good justification for if this attempt at social influence failed.
