Have you ever wrote a family in your own stories that are the very definition of messed up and jus plain crazy? Maybe your MC is a part of the family and wants to disengage from them. Still, it can be other main characters or supporting characters who hail from messed up yet large families that they rather not associate with.
These big families are either royalty, nobility, super rich, or something lesser yet still screwed up regardless.
Do any of you have families like that your own story?
Oh ho ho! I sure do have this!
Crazy families right here
The Steelcrest Dynasty are super extremist who love drama, being better than everyone and even each other. They are constantly trying to one up each other and branches scheme to to rise to the top in some way or form. In order to become the next head.
Hell, the Jackal Dynasty is way worse thanks to Krieg. He goes around screwing every hot woman he has his sights on just to breed more offspring. Krieg massive wifey harem collection is brought on by the LARGE amount of children he has. Every Jackal heir, much like the Steelcrest Dynasty, from whatever branch wants to be a part of the main house. Lower branches are mostly or rather always an after thought and Kreig NEVER acknowledges them since they aren’t from his Top 100 Amazing Wives. Taken up higher that some Jackal heirs aren’t even named and are viewed as less than the ones amongst the lower branches. The wives of Krieg don’t like each other and that is to be expected.
The Thornwood Royal Family of Necromancers, Alchemists, and Magecraft are all criminals who are psychotic in their own way. The eldest child, named Mephisto is the worst of the children, while Faust wants nothing to do with his horrible criminal family. Faust is considered the black sheep of the family, but it odd because he is genuinely talented though Mephisto is more than that. Honestly, Faust is the only Thornwood heir who is nothing like his crazy ass family members.
The Naivin Dynasty aren’t that bad as the Steelcrests, Jackals, Thornwoods, or even the wealthy Jarvis Family of high elites. Yet they aren’t totally excluded from the list, but it mainly depends on the branches, but not so much the main house.
The Veckendecks are the milder version of the Jackals and Steelcrests though not without exception. They have gruesomely bad blood with Jackals Dynasty and are forbidden date or marry or befriend a Jackal member. Aside from that, the Veckendeck are only bat-shit insane in the mid to low-tier branches.
So, what about you guys?
