Family History

Revolt

A revolt marks a period of collapse, destruction, and ruin. Most of these results come from an external invasion, either from another pure-blood family, half-bloods, or muggle-borns, or anyone else who just doesn't like your family, but it can also stem from a period of inept rule that led to a widespread revolt. Invasion/revolt as a first historical event means your house was born from the strife and came to power in the aftermath.

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. Lands and power were chosen for this event.

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.

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.

Defeat

The family fought a war or smaller conflict but was defeated, losing status, precious resources, and influence. If this is the first historical event the family might have been swallowed up by another Family or a marriage was forced until the original family bloodline became all but extinct.

Victory

The family achieve an important victory over their enemies. Foes could another family, another faction. Whomever it might be the family rose in prominence and power because of their victory. As a first result this victory was so great (like winning in a Goblin Revolt) that they were considered Pure enough to join the ranks of the Pure-Blood.

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!

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'.

Family Identity

Reputation

The Travers Family is one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight, and are known for purist sentiments. They are frequently sorted into Slytherin at Hogwarts. The Travers originally came to the Isles from France, and are capable of tracing their lineage back to the first Magic using French Normans. Travers are known to do whatever it takes to get what they want and are a fiercely competitive and slightly underhanded family, their family motto is Sans peur et sans reproche "Without fear and without reproach." It is no curious feat that they have bred some rather interesting figures in the past, ranging from Dark Wizard to Politicians.
