Ricardus

latin, n. powerful leader, chief, powerful ruler
summarized familial history
The Ricardus Family is an old elitist pureblood Family founded in 1250 A.C. by Brittanicus Loxias Ricardus in what was known as the Byzantine Empire. Quickly moving to Italy, it was there that the Family started to thrive. The Family has been politically active ever since its beginning, and quickly built its own empire on the ruins of Rome.

Around 1260 A.C., a big part of the Ricardus Family moved from Rome to the United Kingdom under the lead of Brittanicus' younger twin brother Otho Ricardus. This proved itself an important turning point for the young pureblood Family. Due to trickery, deceit, betrayal and later even Brittanicus' suspicious death, the familial power and its Family seat moved to the United Kingdom.

Due to the suspicious turning point, the internal dynamics of the entirety of the Ricardus Family are hostile and strained. This tends to result in a couple of Family feuds and a lot of suspicion and paranoia. The only thing that connects them is their blood, their money, their respected social status, their Family name and a strong tendency to value ratio over heart. They are cold, indifferent, authoritative and successful - the epitome of power.

British branch

main branch, ruling branch
in short, specifics
The British branch is known to loathe every Muggleborn and Halfblood (without exception) for their impurity. They have a powerful voice in the Wizengamot and the backrooms of the Ministry of Magic. And if they don't busy themselves with politics, then there are always other shady businesses with which they can secretly busy themselves. If you ever come to cross paths with a Ricardus, you can be certain it is a vulture that is after your guts.

Residence: Ricardus Hall, Outside of Freethorpe, Norfolk.

Head-line
loxias ricardus jr. - taken

head of the ricardus family faring by ideologies of pureblood elitism, zero tolerance politics and machiavellianism. he dehumanizes himself for the sake of his family, although he has to break his bones to fit the mold. but even the theophorous ones are riddled with secret mortal vulnerabilities and desires.


FC: RJ Rogenski.  DOB: 31 August 1898. Education: Slytherin, 1916.  Occupation: Businessman, Head of Family, Wizengamot Delegate. Marital Status: Married to Morgan Ricardus. Fathered: Salazar, Emeric, Arcus, Antioch, Herpo, Merwyn, Godelot, Owle.
morgan ricardus - taken / retired

good-looking trophy wife whose hobbies include drowning in diamonds, loathing her husband, secretly wishing her husband had never disowned arcus.


FC: Malgosia Bela. DOB: 24 May 1897. Education: Slytherin, 1917. Occupation: unemployed, save for femme fatale. Marital Status: Loxias Ricardus Jr.. Mothered: Salazar, Emeric, Arcus, Antioch, Herpo, Merwyn, Godelot, Owle.

salazar ricardus - taken

the heir of loxias junior, predestination is at the core of his existence. attempts to run from it failed and he finds himself a tool to his family. a married man, a father, but above all: he will always remain trouble.


FC: Harvey Newton Haydon. DOB: 21 December 1919. Education: Slytherin, 1938. Occupation: Ministerial Policymaker & First Heir. Marital Status: Married, to Pandora Duke. Fathered: Four (two sons, two daughters).
Emeric Ricardus - taken

A typical second son, Emeric hates that his brother will one day inherit the title of "Head of the Family". What he hates even more is that Salazar shows no signs of actually wanting to run the family. It used to be his mission to see to it that Sal would be disowned but he's since moved on to other things. Namely, finding himself someone worthy of his attention. Oh, yeah, Emeric's a bit arrogant as well.


FC: Sean O'Pry. DOB: 5 July 1921. Education: Slytherin, 1939. Occupation: Ministry Worker for International Affairs. Marital Status: Married.

arcus ricardus - taken

born as arcus ricardus, third son of loxias junior, he allowed himself to be disowned. after finishing his education at salem institute, he returned as rid the wandmaker. awkward to the bone but with a big altruistic heart. his life is one big mess and he fails to cope.


FC: Hunter Parrish. DOB: 24 June 1923. Education: Salem, Rook, 1940. Occupation: Wandmaker. Marital Status: Forever Alone.
Antioch Ricardus - open!

Opportunist, probably taking advantage of not being in the spotlights 24/7.


FC: Florian van Bael. DOB: 29 August 1924. Education: Slytherin, 1942. Occupation: unknown. Marital Status: Unknown.

herpo ricardus - taken / retired

most certainly doesn't like his name. Due to ending up in Hufflepuff, he's the Family's disgrace. He has the urge to prove himself to his Family and will do anything in his power. If that means he has to kill his brothers to get on the throne, he most certainly will.


FC: Will Higginson. DOB: 1 October 1925. Education: Hufflepuff, 1944. Occupation: Unknown. Marital Status: Unknown.
Merwyn Ricardus - taken

Desperate to prove himself as worthy of his pureblood lineage, Merwyn is prepared to go to whatever lengths necessary to show his value. Working at the Ministry under Salazar Ricardus, his older brother, still rankles, but Merwyn is prepared to bide his time until he can strike and show just how determined he can be. Graduate of Slytherin, class of 1945, Merwyn is ready to rise through the ranks of the Ministry in order to gain the power he feels he is entitled to.


FC: AJ Abualrub. DOB: 13 January 1927. Education: Slytherin, 1945.Occupation: Personal Assistant for Salazar Ricardus. Marital Status: Unknown.

Godelot ricardus - open!

He used to be a dork and goof all-in-one package, but got more serious over time. That does not say that he is no longer in for an occasional prank, though.


FC: Robbie Beeser. DOB: 12 December 1928, and most certainly the oldest of the twins, thank you. Education: Slytherin, 1947. Occupation: Unknown. Marital Status: Unknown.
Owle Ricardus - open!

He used to believe he is an unicorn. Now he probably still thinks so. He's the red right hand of his twin brother Godelot and is basically a lazy dog.


FC: Robbie Beeser. DOB: 12 December 1928, and the youngest of the twins. Education: Slytherin, 1947. Occupation: Unknown. Marital Status: Unknown.

Second-in-line
Richard ricardus - taken

Envious and cunning.

estella ricardus - taken

pureblood slytherin princess.


FC: Barbara Palvin. DOB: 09 January 1929. Education: Slytherin, 1947. Occupation: Kingsley paper. Marital Status: Single.

Aurelia ricardus - open!

Aurelia is Richard's second daughter, and an annoying know-it-all at that. It was this astounding cleverness that got her sorted in Ravenclaw, although she also proves herself to be ambitious. Her Father is keen on arranging a marriage for her with a pureblood male, disregarding fact that she's secretively lesbian in a very conservative household.


FC: Gara Arias. DOB: 15 June 1931. Education: Ravenclaw, 1949. Occupation: Unknown. Marital Status: Unknown.
Iola ricardus - taken

a little sugar, mostly spice and nothing else nice.


FC: Luma Grothe. DOB: 8th November, 1933. Education: Slytherin, 1952. Marital Status: Betrothed, to Julias Blackwood.

Calista ricardus - open!

Calista is the fourth and youngest daughter of Richard, and probably the most fun to be around. She's the smiley teenager in a gloomy household, always has her head in the clouds and her feet barely touching the ground, seemingly resistant to the cold indifference that generally sets the Ricardi apart.


FC: Miranda Kerr. DOB: 20 February 1936. Education: Hufflepuff(?), 1955.
Castor ricardus - taken

Unknown.


FC: Nolan Gross. DOB: 3 April 1940. Education: Unknown House, 1958.

Third-in-line
Jarvis ricardus - taken

Jarvis is forever the little brother of Loxias Ricardus Junior, whom he'll envy to the day he dies, and son of Loxias Ricardus Senior, who terrifies him. He's the purest of the purest, and will not accept the slightest drop of taint. You don't want to cross him or his family. He's also the father of four girls and no boys, to his own grief. He spends most of his time fighting with his brother.


FC: Calle Strand. DOB: 16 November 1903. Education: Slytherin, 1922. Occupation: Gringotts Security. Marital Status: Married, to Ainia Ricardus. Fathered: Lilith, Medea, Evelyn, Appolonia.
ainia ricardus - taken

extremely well-behaved trophy wife, probably the only one sort of happy with her marriage.


FC: Bianca Balti. DOB: 9 August 1907. Education: Watsworth, 1925. Occupation: looking pretty also. Marital Status: Married, to Jarvis Ricardus. Mothered: Lilith, Medea, Evelyn, Appolonia.

Lilith Carlisle (Née Ricardus) - taken

Lilith is Jarvis' oldest daughter, who was promised and married to Edward Carlisle, heir of the Carlisles. They're an odd couple and have just had their first daughter. She's the perfect woman and housewife who never questions her husbands motives and always does as he wishes, as her father has taught her to be. She believes 100% in wizard purity.


FC: Ashleigh Good. DOB: 18 September 1925. Education: Slytherin, 1943. Occupation: Unknown. Marital Status: Married, to Edward Carlisle. Mothered: Edith.
Medea ricardus - open!

Out of Jarvis' girls, Medea was always the odd one out, caring and more prone to take care of her younger sisters than the much colder Lilith. Has been caught several times with muggle literature at her hands, which leaves her at high risk of getting kicked out of the family - her father is working on setting her up with a suitable husband to keep her desires in check. The most watched of all the girls, and the one who has been subjected to the harshest punishments.


FC: Femke Huijzer. DOB: 12 april 1927. Education: Hufflepuff, 1945. Occupation: Unknown. Marital Status: Unknown.

Evelyn Ricardus - taken

Blunt and snarky around others, while the exceptionally clever and obedient around her father, Evelyn is a two-faced creature with the cunning to know what to do to get what she wants. Has the power to influence her father's pick in husband for her, as long as he's pure.


FC: Daria Korchina. DOB: 3 December 1929. Education: Slytherin, 1949. Occupation: Unknown. Marital Status: Unknown.
Appolonia ricardus - taken

Little girls grow up.


FC: Unknown. DOB: 26 January 1934. Education: Unknown House, 1952.

Rosalie Ricardus - open!

Rosalie loves pretty things and kittens, and is a lovely creature with a tendency to dress herself in all pastels. Quiet and perfectly well behaved, and probably an exemplary student, though undoubtably elitist. Doesn't like getting dirty.


FC: Noor Schauten. DOB: 19 October 1939. Education: Slytherin/Ravenclaw, 1957.
Marigold ricardus - open!

wip.


FC: Antonia Haswell. DOB: 4 November 1942. Education: Unknown House, 1960.

NPCs
loxias ricardus sr. - dead

Everyone who has known him will remember him as cold, indifferent, hateful, intolerant and downright evil. Under his reign, the influence and power of the Ricardus Family increased significantly but it came at the prize of him being heartless.


FC: Rutger Hauer. DOB: 15 march 1870. DOD: 12 July 1948. Education: Slytherin, 1898.  Former Occupation: Businessman, Head of Family, Wizengamot Delegate. Marital Status: Married to Salome Ricardus. Fathered: Loxias Jr., Richard, Jarvis, Adrian.
Adrian ricardus - npc

innocent, prisoned for a crime loxias junior committed. yet, adrian has started to believe he did it, fallen prey to false memories and insanity. he's a disgrace to the ricardus name and therefore disowned and not talked about.


FC: Cedric Bihr. dob: 2 january 1905. education: slytherin, 1924. occupation: azkaban inmate.

Italian branch

inferior branch, the submissives
in short, specifics
The Italian branch is known to be slightly more tolerant towards Muggleborns and Halfbloods, but only out of diplomatic necessity. They will team up with impurer wizards and witches when they deem it beneficial for their businesses. If this is not the case, they will still ignore those of impurer blood like thin air. They also have an influential voice in the Italian equivalent of the Ministry of Magic, and busy themselves mostly with policymaking and legislation.

The dynamics with the British branch are bitter and malevolent, as they are still not over the suspected betrayal of Otho Ricardus and believe that the Familial seat belongs in Italy. They frequently travel to the United Kingdom, as if they want to physically retrieve the power they have lost, but they remain an inferior Ricardus branch till this day.

Residence: Ricardus Villa, Outside of Rome.

self-proclaimed ultimate spoiled brat and daddy’s girl. she has no fear or qualms or hesitation, and greatly admires and takes after her father’s dismissal of what’s deemed “acceptable”.

OPEN. Ixion Ricardus Jr.
FC: David Gandy

The cousin you wished you never had. DOB: 2 January 1900. Education: Watsworth, 1919. Occupation: businessman, very strong criminal ties. Relation: up to player. Sibling to: Ainia, Silva. In short: lean mean apathetic (pathetic?) killing machine.

OPEN. Alpheus Ricardus
FC: Joel Alexander

Just another cousin. DOB: 2 April 1902. Education: Watsworth, 1921. Occupation: Businessman. Relation: up to player. Sibling to: Zeus, Alrigo, Aphrodite, Lykopis. In short: dubiously charming and gifted with sharp wit rather than ambition. But, let's be honest, a beautiful beard to make up for his imperfections.

OPEN. Circe Ricardus
FC: Andreea Diaconu

Your most beloved femme fatale. DOB: 17 February 1903. Education: Homeschooled. Occupation: socialite. Relation: up to player. Sibling to: Morgan, Orion. In short: It's a man's world, but here she comes. She is determined and has a lot of ideals. Certain that she is as manly as you are, but combined with the delicate female traits that make her even more dangerous.

OPEN. Orion Ricardus
FC: Andrea marcaccini

An obedient dog. DOB: 6 May 1910. Education: Homeschooled. Occupation: delegate, commanded by Zeus, striving to get the power centralized in Italy again. Relation: up to player. Sibling to: Morgan, Circe. In short: does everything but what Zeus asks him.

Taken. Silva Ricardus

Cousin. DOB: 10 February 1922. Education: Watsworth, 1940. Sibling to: Ainia, Ixion Jr.. In short: Very up for trying to marry the heir of the heir of the British branch, Salazar Ricardus. In this way, she can gain more power over the Family.

OPEN. Aphrodite Ricardus
FC: Diana Moldovan

The cousin that occasionally slips away to dream land. DOB: 21 June 1917. Education: Watsworth, 1935. Sibling to: Zeus, Alpheus, Alrigo, Lykopis. In short: would marry for fame and money. If you can keep both of her feet to the ground, she tends to day dream a lot.

Taken. Eurydice Ricardus
FC: Anna Selezneva


Probably on the very verge of being disowned. DOB: 8 November 1916. Education: Watsworth, 1934. In short: there are some dishonorable rumors filling the halls of the Ricardi's mausoleum, and it's likely she gets the short end of the stick.

Iola - Age 8
Calista - Age 5

There is also Castor, age 3, who is not open for adoption. Just wanted to add him in.
