Family History

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 power were chosen for this event.

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.

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.

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!

Family Identity

Motto: "Nos sumus et erimus." Which means: "We were, we are, we will be."
