Family History

Scandal

The family was involved in some disaster, a scandal that haunts them still. Good options include spawning a bastard (worse still a half-blood bastard), incest (Brothers and Sisters, Parents and children - even that's too much for even the more fanatical pure-bloods. Now first cousins on the other hand is fine!), failed conspiracies, and so on. If this is the first event, the scandal somehow was used as a way of covering something else up that allows the family to get Pure-blood status. After all no matter how scandalous, siblings breeding does keep the blood pure!

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.

Fiasco

This result usually indicates a natural disaster such as an outbreak of plague, blight, fire, or drought that wasn't handled well and turned into a catastrophic fiasco which diminishes the families population and ability to thrive. If this is the first event the family somehow (through possibly dubious or tragic means) rose in station as another family suffered.

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.

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.

Favor

The family gained the favor of some powerful body. As a result, their fortunes improved and they climbed in standing. This favor might also result from a member becoming Minister for Magic or on the Wizengamot. If this is the first event, the family got in good with the higher powers enough that they were deemed pure enough to be considered Pure-Bloods.
