Families of Eerie
Eerie has a lot of prominent, historical, forgotten and infamous families, some of them has been her since the colonization, and others have been here for a lot less time. This sub-forum will include the information about the most prominent families on Eerie. Each family will include information about the background of more families and their more prominent family members.
In Eerie there are groups that have organized themselves as power groups, some of them are complete families other are outside family boundaries. Some of these groups are criminal or supernatural groups some are known by everyone some are a complete secret. Some are composed only by members of the same family (like the Eastwick) and others are composed by members of the same ethnic group (like the Shawnee) some are composed of different people from different families.
Long before the times of the American Civil War (possibly 1750 or later) economic and political power was in the hands of the Bradford Family until it passed to the Fitzwillians on the 1860’s, and later, in the 1960’s the Partelli took some of that power from them. On the 1990’s the Partelli allied with newcomers the Louthern placing the Fitzwilliams in a third place around the powerful and rich of Eerie.
On the other hand, the original owners of Eerie, the Shawnee tribe, had always been in the background of the economical wake of Eerie taking care of their own like a big family. On the last 100 years a civil organization known as WECCO has a strong influence in politics.
The biggest criminal groups on Eerie are of a varied kind. The ones controlled by Motherland and Towermayer who deal in smuggling and transportation. Donatello specializes in gambling and protection rackets. There is another criminal aspect raising on the media industry and controlled by The Roque Group. The secret organization known as The Three Sevens was disabled in a secret war and currently has no power.
There are unknown forces at work on Eerie, deeper than the families, criminal organizations or gangs, the Coveniere had been sharing the control of supernatural resources on Eerie with a secret group of Shawnee called The Shamani until the 1850’s when the Eastwick family arrived. Since then, a secret war for the control of Eerie has endured. Ghoul Packs and the people of Eeriertown had their own spheres of power but always try to stay below the radar of these three powerful magical groups.
