Family History

Treachery

This can be a suffering from or the actual committing of a treacherous act. In either case the event stains the family name. If it is a first event the family rose by means of some dark deed, possibly betraying another family to do so.

Ascent

An advantageous marriage, a great deed, or heroism in a decisive battle/duel can all improve the fortunes of a family. If this occurs in the first historical event, it indicates that the family pure-blood status happened through marriage and or an act or deed that proved pure enough to be established as a Pure-Blood Family. Otherwise, ascent indicates that the family participated in some key historical event that improved their fortunes.

Descent

Whether from a poor marriage, or a downturn in trade, or a series of tragic loses in a conflict, the family entered a period of decline. If this is the first event the family was probably mingle with less pure bloodlines, or it was a pure-blood marriage, just not an advantageous one. Because of this a lesser branch of the family took to being the 'main branch'.

Footing

This describes a period of peace and prosperity, a moment in the family's history remembered for growth and expansion. If this is the first result the family was born during a period of expansion. Influence and wealth were selected for this event.

Villain

The family produced a character of unspeakable cruelty and wickedness, a villain whose name is still whispered with dread. Such a character might have committed terrible crimes or was simply just a bad person. In a first result this monster rests the status through evil means, such as murdering a rival and seizing their resources.

Conquest

The family fought and defeated an enemy,taking over their holdings, making them theirs. With such a victory comes the trouble of old loyalties, weakening the families popularity with many. If conquest is the first historical event they gained Pure-Blood Status by defeating another Pure-Blood Family.
